Fif teen years ago, I was getting ready to start a guide business and also writing a lot for a bunch of magazines, including Field & Stream.
Apparently, I wrote this piece back in February of 1998…long since forgotten of course, until the subject of the article, longtime Lake Tahoe charter skipper Leonard O’Malley, showed up on my jet sled this summer and caught a couple nice kings.
Funny thing is, we’d never met before that day in August of 2012! I’m pleased to report he’s still going strong on Tahoe and I’m, well, still doing my thing too although it’s been quite a while since I wrote anything for F&S.
Here’s Leonard O with a nice king…
