You can see the splash of the net mesh just a split second after I released it…and if you look closely, check out the Slinky and the big bend in the spinning stick.
Until I saw this pic, I had no idea that I net fish with a foot up on the rail! At the moment of truth, the only thing i am thinking about is getting the fish into the bag!
Thanks to Che’ for sending this shot.
Somehow, the summer blew right on by this year…and it marked the first time in over a dozen years that I didn’t go to Alaska. So, I was feeling kinda sad about all that and started looking at pix from trips past. That, of course, led to some video watching and that’s how we ended up here, with me re-posting a little travelogue vid from a few years back.
So, I apologize if you’ve already seen this one, but it was kinda like therapy for me last night. Maybe one of these days, I’ll get around to making a movie from our mission there last season!
