The Four Amigoes,on King Salmon Creek,Dave,myself,Joe & Jay,all fish where hooked,landed,photographed,released to fight another day,in a matter of 10 minuets,our guides Miles and Cris earned their pay,on this day,and a fine
job they did !
There is only one thing I can think of bad about Alsaka,leaving,unfordunatly something many of us have to do. What a place,to visit & fish,& there is no doubt
in my mind that this is truley "Gods Country",and I do truley belive I have been blessed,to have had the oppertunity to visit & fish there. If you like to fish or
just enjoy the Great Outdoors,a visit to Alaska,should be in your plans.My memories of this fine visit,have been etched in my memory forever,the lesssons learned,new technices,and methods,new fly patterns,bead fishing,new species caught,The Bear experiences"Fishing with The Griz",are memories that seem almost sureal.
I Thank the Johnsons,@ Naknek River Camp,Phyllis,Jim,James,Tana,& Hunter,along with guides,John,Miles,Jacob & Chris,and the rest of there staff,for the very fine accomadations,meals,direction,freinship & fishing that they provided us with !
As General McAuther once said "I shalll return" as will I,to The Naknek River Camp.
A Zip Lined KSC Cohoe,after discovering Zip Lining on the bigger waters of the Naknek
River,the previous 2 days,and having very good sucess,I began my first day on KSC fishing the Zip line again,I caught fish,but fishing by Dave and watching him "Kick My Butt" all morning,I took Dave lead,and switched to a floating line,and my hook-ups
tripled........"That-A-Boy,Dave!"as the Lennox TV Commercial used to say !

We worked Miles our Guide hard as he ran from Jay & Dave upstream of us,and would hustle back down to my screams of "Get The Net,Get The Net" !
