    We opted to not run the trials up here since the boys are with us but will run the next two trials in the Uintas

    And it's 66 degrees here and I had to wear some fleece hoodies under the waders, the water is cold, I know because I fell in already

    I trained today in Turnagain Pass with 3 people from Soldotna. They said the river was full of reds.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Brother and wife recently moved to King Salmon after living years in Cordova, AK. The fishing is great, close to a hundred reds in a day of fishing. They can harvest 300 for subsistence but are concentrating on kings.
    So far 26 lbs is their largest king.
    Oh how I wish....

    Cool! Have fun in the Uintas. We were there this time last year and I saw ( a little TOO close) the biggest creature I have ever been near. A huge moose that would have dwarfed a Clydesdale! The trout fishing wasn't bad either.

    Keep a look out for a guide who is about 6'-8" and rides with a Chessie and a fella who runs a charter plane service. Have a few pups right in the area.

    we took the boys to the grounds at Turnagain Pass on the way to Soldotna just to remember Mr McFall and of course the stories started to flow, a few tears, but also a ton of smiles....

    Well make one final assault on the reds this morning before heading to Anchorage tonite, flying out early Sunday


    We saw moose every day here on the side of the road, many with calves, the locals tell us between the cars and the wolves they are doing a number on them

    Those boots were made famous by Chris Kleinburger. He took the Native's the first rubber boots which they transformed into a stylish original UGG boot. They were a huge hit at Saks 5th Ave when he debuted them and his clothing line of Safari based designs in the early 1960's.
