come back up to Alaska

Prolly never make it back.  Youse guys up there now pretty much getting stuck/frozen into your igloos!😂.  In July shucks we were going strong a 11:00 PM   In Anchorage peeps living on the water all have float planes....down here they all have bass boats.  The creeks we fished up the road where I caught my prize prolly froze over by now...

Wow, beautiful fish denduke and cool video. We used to have a good salmon fishery here in Michigan, still some on the west side but not much on the east side. Thanks for sharing.

Mike.

One question - was the rod in your mouth while you were CATCHING that fish!?  That's the size fish I tell stories about long after I caught a 8incher.  I always figured that after the years went by the fish must have grown!

Nice catch!

tail - yarn flame
rib - small wire gold
body - Starburst dubbing gold
hackles - dyed sunburst (1 Tbs Rit Golden Yellow/1 cup water)
