That looks like fun I've heard Seward is breathtaking... on the bucket list.

We tried our hand at fly fishing and explored the river a bit after we limited out.
Nice catch!

Hell yeah. Nice haul.
I still don’t have any halibut under my belt.
I always end up out there on the halibut sabbath day for one reason or another.

Don’t be fooled. The 3 gallon container is left over from breakfast! All the other empties were left on the boat for their guide to recycle... :D

What’s the matter, biking as far as you can, then hiking into some isolated lake, fishing, and then using drift wood to cook your catch isn’t enough these days?

We can't find fish that big in any lakes . Besides, wifey catches most and I have this theory that's is just because they're racist Norwegian fish. So, if we head back CONUS for some fishing the advantage should tilt in my favor (I know... whatever helps me sleep better at night, right)
