Combat Fishing

Josiah, Michael, Nolan and Alex left this morning to go combat fishing on the Russian River in the Kenai peninsula. The plan was to fish all day, spend the night in a tent or their car, and fish all day tomorrow. Jamin and possibly Jared will join them tomorrow.
I was surprised Stacia opted to stay home. She said she wanted some "girl time." It turns out 1. the idea of sleeping in a car with all the guys didn't appeal to her and 2. Mom G had told her stories about folks nearly drowning in waders - she didn't want to try the waders. 😊 I'm happy to have her company.

The guys shared a few photos. I hear they are having fun. They are making memories. It rained all day, began really pouring around 4 p.m.  They look cold to me. πŸ˜‰ Michael said, "It's a fine and pleasant misery."

 The total Salmon count for the day is 3. Michael caught all 3. One of the boys texted, "Tomorrow, we'll all get fish. If the disabled vet can do it - we can too."  There they are - our first fish since the Alaska migration.
