Kendra's 16th Birthday Fishing Trip

Kendra and her best buds, Vicky and Taylor, asked me to take them fishing. It was an adventure. Not a quiet adventure, but an adventure, never the less.
Taylor, having flashbacks of biology class.

Teaching Vicky that presentation is everything when photographing your catch.It's really not THAT big.

Does she look like she's having fun?
Even clusters of oysters can be fun when little creatures (mostly crabs) keep falling out of them.
Removing hooks and everything! Kendra was so brave, to a point. Now, if I could just teach her not to stand on my fishing rods....

Taylor caught the first trout.
Thanks for your young spirit, girls.

Zane's Trout Night

Usually, Zane says, "If they're biting, call me. I seldom remember." This trip he came with a hope, as I do. He was rewarded, handsomely.

Gene and the Red

My good friend, Gene, should have been featured on my fishing blog long before now. Tonight, he joined me on the river for a little relaxation. Thankfully, I did have the camera along.
Gene is a terrific fisherman, with a positive attitude about life in general. The Red Fish was our first this spring. Thanks, Gene, for dropping by.

Willie & Ellen Pecchia Family

Andrew (A Keeper)
Our friends, Willie and Ellen, live near Boise, Idaho. Willie loves the outdoors, and is instilling that love into his children. These photos are from recent fishing expeditions. Andrew, above is about ready for his own fishing pole. Willie may have already gotten him one.

Joshua gets a closeup look at a Kokanee Salmon. Joshua is a very intelligent young man, who loves to read.

Ellen tolerates Willie's bringing stringers of fish into thehouse.

Anything to get to the camera. That's a nice stringer of fish!

Almost dinner!

Caprial knows how to pick up a fish without touching it.

Saeli takes the more direct approach.

She would do anything to please dad.
