“Should I…shouldn’t I.”
“I’ll just send them a quick note.”
“I’m gonna do it!”
I’ve been a big fan of Moldy Chum and Reel Pure after stumbling upon them some time back. Back in June, I read on Moldy Chum that B2 and ER were planning to visit Alaska and wanted to know if any locals could give them ideas of where to fish. I never imagined that when I responded back to their call things would end up the way that it did. I shot them an email and gave them some ideas of where to wet a line. ER responded back and asked if I wanted to join them.
“Are you kidding?”
So the stage was set. Moldy Chum and Reel Pure were coming to Alaska! Yours truly gets to rub elbows with the Big Boys!
Damn! I better get my game together. Ohhhhhh…the pressure!
Fortunately for us (i.e. me) the fish cooperated. B2 pulled in a 22″ rainbow using a size 20 flashback pheasant tail. We sight fished to this fatty who gave us the fin until B2 got his number and dialed him direct. ER pulled in the fish of the trip. A 26″ male rainbow, hooked kype and all. I even managed to sneak a few in.
Tuning In Alaska
I’m grateful for the opportunity B2 and ER gave me to show them some of my home waters. Any time you guys are back in Alaska…give me shout and we’ll go fishing. Like a good friend of mine says, “I’m down like 4 flat tires.”
