Well… Another week of murder and mayhem is in the books here on the Naknek River! Pretty much spent every day since last report bonking Sockeye on the head and then releasing them once a limit was obtained, but I did manage to squeeze in a few Rainbows and Grayling along the way.


Saw some cool stuff on the river this week including the usual assortment of birds and bears, but unfortunately I wasn’t quick enough with the camera to get a shot of the Lynx or Golden Eagles.

Here’s the gratuitous bear shot...

The boys put a hurt on ‘em this week!

A few of our Bows...

As many of you know, I’m not up here because I need to be, I’m up here to have fun in an awesome environment while I’m still young and now healthy enough again to do so. For a little while last year, I thought I’d never get that chance again. That being said, my whole outlook on everything has changed these days and I am enjoying “summer camp” more so than ever this year!

Pringleville in the evening.

Even bought myself a $20.00 steak at the grocery store! ;^)

Caught my first Pink on a non-pink year! Kinda cool.

Everyone at camp seems to be pretty good folks all around this year, but I must say, I’m really enjoying hanging out with some of my friends in the same age group from home. Sort of the Baldwin Mafia geriatric style! He, he, he…

A great evening hanging with Walt, didn’t catch anything but a buzz...

Jim Johnson’s home for wayward old Baldwin guides.

We can still get ‘er done! ;^)

Not much else to write about really. As I type we’ve got the old crew of guest on the way out and the new crew arriving. I’m waiting on a window with a vehicle available so that I can go find some internet to post this, do some laundry and a little shopping. Really fun catching up with clients I haven’t seen for a couple of years, but I’m not sure how many more times I can tell the story of last year. I’m still here, I fooled ‘em and let’s just leave it at that.

See ya next year guys. Great having you and thanks for all the well wishes you sent me last year!

Till next time, tight lines…
