It’s over for the season, and as I leave again for another 6 months, I look back at all the good times that I had. The fishing was great throughout the entire year, and the co-workers this year, for the most part were great. There were some that came and went, but here at the Lodge, we strive to only keep the best of the best. That is what we had by the end of the year, and we are hoping to see the return of most of this group. I can not say enough about the staff here at the Yakutat Lodge, so thanks for all the good times, and the memories. My photographer, was not available that much this season, and I am hoping to get some good Steelies in the air next year, and possibly this winter. From the snow in April, the sun in June and July, to the wind and storms of September, I love it all, and will be returning to Yakutat Lodge for some time to come. I want to say Thanks to Ken Fanning,(Owner), Kip Fanning,(Owners Son), and the newest members of the management team, Dan and Hope Anderson, now in their second year here. They worked hard this year to keep up good service through a tougher economy this year. Next year will be even better. The fishing will always be good, but the service will be great. We are rebuilding, and improving this next few years. There will be new facilities at the bay, and also a completely new experience at the Fanning’s on the Bay house, where you will have one on one service, private chef’s, and fully guided trips of your choice daily. Call up to get a brochure mailed to you, or to ask about information. Also you can visit www.Yakutatlodge.com for more info. Call 1-907-784-3232 or toll free at 1-800-YAKUTAT. See ya next season. Back in Oregon, getting married in Las Vegas on November 14th. Hope to be able to update during this time. Will be in Mexico also in Nov. where I will be fishing rooster fish. Look for the pics.
