Les Anderson Day
It was 25 years ago today that Les Anderson of Soldotna, Alaska caught the world record king salmon on the Kenai River. Les is no longer with us but his legend still lives on. The mount of his 97.4lb fish is in the Soldotna Visitor Center and a chainsaw art statue honoring him is out in front (pictured above).
I won't be out on the river today paying my respect to ol' Les because it's "drift boat, non-guided Monday" day. But you know, I'll be out this week trying to do my best to set the next world record.
