Shamra joins the Tyee Club

 34 1/2 pounds !  Shamra caught this fish under the rules of the Tyee Club. She played the fish solidly, consistently, and it just would't quit easily. We drifted a long way with the tide and netted it in dim light. It is a very special and memorable occasion .

rowing with Dave in the Davis Pool

Hoping for a 30 pounder in the traditional Tyee Club method and catching regular large size mature chinooks is still a pretty terrific show. We missed Holly bunches this year. We hope you can both make it next year.

Oh, the one that got away

After ten minutes of grand fight the fish charged the boat and the hooks came loose. " Wow," says Bob, " that fish gave you a better fight , Larry, than any fish we caught last year." 
 Well darn, the big ones do sometimes get away .  Just out for a morning, luckily the guys connected with a hatchery coho for dinner.  
  See you next year.

Return and bring friends

Jim and Glenna came back to one of their favourite spots, Steep Island Lodge, and invited their friends , Neil and Geni,and Mike and Marilyn, to join them.  They had the whole lodge to themselves for a few days, in manager Chantal's fine care.  They'll have their fish processed and shipped back to California. 

Jim and Glenna have been coming to this area for salmon fishing for , how many years ?  over 30 ? We can't be that old .  Good times, again !
