Thanks for posting this video, Mark. I really enjoy seeing your home state. I bet you never got tired of catching fish. Did I miss it or didn't you spot any moose?

Only one cow moose. To be honest, we didn't try very hard to find a bull. I have four freezers plugged in already. I have no where to put one. Thanks for the kind words. So for I haven't fished enough to get tired of it but I'll keep trying. biggrin.png

Wow, what a great trip!  I might just have to put that on my bucket list.  I had to laugh at the underwater footage footage.  I was trying to figure out what was growling, I thought it was the fish before I figured it out.  That really makes me wonder about fly line noise... I'll start a new post.

 

Here's the Florida version: Link

Probably one of my all time favorite videos.

Here's a video from a trip I did this fall in interior Alaska.

 

Geez Mark the whole state of Massachusetts is roughly 200 miles tip to tip.  For us driving 100 miles in any direction would put us in a whole other state!  The size of Alaska is awesome. My daughter went up there a few years back and got me a "Texas is cute" tee shirt.   My wife has family outside of Anchorage but I have never been.  From what I can see in the vid Beaver "Creek" would be considered a major river in these parts -  If you don't mind me asking are you born and raised or a transplant?

D, I moved here in 1984 to be a big game guide, commercial fisherman and professional trapper. I did all those things for 15 years, got married and domesticated a little bit. We started our business in 2000 and now I mostly fish and hunt for myself.
