You can’t ask for better clients in the boat. I had the pleasure of fishing with this couple on three different occasions this last week, and everyday was a great one. The underwater king video’s were all from the time I was with them. Jim and Kristin are both good fly fisherman, and Jim learned that a spinning rod can sometimes be your best friend. While fishing the last day, Kristin caught the majority of the Sockeye needed, and did it all on the fly rod. While Jim struggled a bit the last day on the fly rod, he came to life when the spinning rod came into play. He must have landed 20 Dolly Varden, a couple Jack Salmon, and two large Kings. Kristin also caught a large King on her fly rod while fishing for Sockeye. These are the days that make guiding worth it for me. Two great clients, a bunch of fish, and the weather was not to awful for us. It was a lot of fun, and the memories of these great fish will be with me until next year, when I hope they come back for round 2.
Good luck out there.
