From the banks of the Kenai River

It is often said that the worst day of fishing is better than the best day of working. My motto has always been that if the fish start bothering you, you can always throw the empties at them. There is no better place to do that than the banks of the Kenai River during the sockeye season. The Kenai produces the largest King salmon on record and there is nothing finer than reeling in a cooler full of hard fighting and delicious Sockeyes.
The link below is a poor substitute to that Alaska adventure and I only caught one eight pounder my first time but it is a good way to while away the hours while you sit in your office looking out at the piles of snow and ice, dreaming of the real thing. Enjoy, and look out for the moose.
