Mac's first sockeye. Sockeye #2, he's somewhat of a fish slayer!
My first sockeye. As you can see I couldn't wait to eat him.
The fishing hole.
This is what we look like after waking up at 3:30 or 4 in the morning or even staying up all night, hiking for an hour each way, fishing all day until 11:30 or so and then coming home to go to work! It makes for a long day but its lots of fun and so worth it.
No real reason for this picture, I just thought it would be cool.
We watched this little family of ducks all day and we actually saw a bald eagle try and swoop down to grab one a couple times. It was pretty neat to watch.
Nice backward 'C' on the little 5 weight rod.
Mac, pullin for all he's worth. Apparently so was the fish.
I had to let this one go because I snagged him. But I had to get a picture because I didn't know if I would get another one that day. And it was a good thing because we wouldn't have kept this one anyways, he was starting to turn colors and their meat goes soft and they're no good.
A kiss goodbye.
We both ended up keeping 2 fish that day and mine was bigger!!!
Fish lovers, us and them.
