It was an average day fly fishing for Sockeye on the Kasilof River but it was blue skies and 70 degrees. "Big John" served our country in Afghanistan and was wounded and now an amputee. He was also a hell of a fisherman and didn't let one fish get upstream to the rest of the boys all afternoon. After bringing in 2-3, Big John went on security duty watching the cooler. Every once in a while, he would through his line out and while sittin on the cooler, he somehow caught a big one! He went to hootin and hollerin and I looked downstream and next thing I know, he was half way in the water hooked into a solid 8 pound sockeye salmon. I've seen some people catch a few, but I ain't never seen someone reel one in while being fully submerged in glacier water! That's just something you can't coach! Thanks, guys for one of the best trips I've ever had.
