Spey set up:

Marryat MR 9

St Croix Spey 13 ft 7/8 weight

Went 0 for 12 but it was a great baptizing for the new rod, some great fights in those fish. They would have swam free even if I landed one, two were close if I would have some one with me to help think I would have gotten at least one of them for sure.

Running into log jams with 4 lb test leader and 10-14 lb steelies is not a high probability of success to the angler.

Oh well went 0 for 20 something on fresh kings one time in the PM and we walked out that day saying Alaska could not be better.

Life is good when the fish are there
