Pictured above are Linda, Bill, Mark, and Jodi. Over the course of a couple of days we red fished, dipnetted, and red fished some more. Needless to say there are tired arms and plenty of fillets in the freezer. It was a lot of fun spending time with Bill and Linda again and it was great to meet Mark and Jodi for the first time. Also, thanks guys for the great dinner!
If you follow the blog through the years you've seen quite a few photos of Dave and Sarah Sporrer catching king salmon (pictured above with Jane). This year Jane and I got to spend an afternoon with them fishing reds on the bank. Great weather, great fishing, and great company. Hard to beat that!
Let me end this post by talking about the weather. Most of the lower 48 has been burning up this summer. Alaska, on the other hand, has seen the second coldest July ever (Anchorage specifically). The average temperature for the month has been 54.6 degrees. Hate to rub it in but this is another great reason to visit Alaska in the summer.
See you next week.
