  • Highlights of the Trip:
    The steadiness of the fishing; the grandeur of the Kenai Country and the full day of fishing. We put in at 5 am and fished constantly through 5:30 pm. Fred said he typically fishes a 10-hour day on this canyon float, but we just lost track of time in the canyon, which was an especially unique place to fish and the fishing especially good. Fred is maybe the most professional guide I have been privileged to utilize. Attach whatever characteristics you would to "professional" and they are possessed by Fred. He was committed to us maximizing the day, catching fish. Continually asking us what we wanted to do, and worked hard, back rowing back up river so we could re-fish what had been a productive run or stream. He was constantly hopping between the three of us netting, talking, fixing flies, moving us to different locations, improving our fishing, laughing and enjoying the day with us. He took meticulous care of his equipment and just plain worked hard. One time during the afternoon as he was back rowing up to re-drift a seam which we had already gone through twice and caught two fish each time, my 14 year old Jason, leaned over and whispered in my ear. "Dad, he sure is working hard for us." When one receives that sort of compliment from a teenager, you are doing something right.
