We'll still be friends; and what is more.
I'll have my fishing rods and bait
Prepared behind the Pearly Gate.
At Spirit Lake we'll wet our lines.
I'm sure the fish will be divine.
But, please, pray tell! I've got to know!
There, at the place where we will go,
Will Angel Fish be caught that day?
Or, will we catch a Devil Ray?

Some stretches of the Salmon River were a challenge to navigate in waders.

We found snow alongside the road, and, could not resist a little snowball entertainment.
Sunsets were what you might expect in a frontier like Alaska. These two shots were taken about eleven o'clock at night. The sun would rise again about three o'clock. It never got dark enough to need a flashlight.
Down, out of the mountains, we discovered wild brilliant beau ques, arranged by the Master Florist.
We even stumbled onto the Alaska Pipeline while we explored primitive backroads.
Jim and Brady arrived in Anchorage. We picked them up at the airport and drove to our cabin on the Kenai Peninsula.
Wildlife was abundant, from large to small.
It was off to the Russian River at the first opportunity. Braden got an assist in landing his, first ever, Sockeye.
There's always a payment to be made for having fun. I was impressed that Jim, always, worked hard when work was necessary.
Halibut fishing was enjoyed by all aboard the Nautilus II.

The view from the dock at sunrise and early morning. Night fishing is especially enjoyable because of the floodlights illuminating the water. Many times the water takes on the appearance of a sea aquarium.
