We laughed pretty hard when she told us that we would be fishing without bait. "Just flop it out there" she said. "Start upstream at like 11 o'clock and let it drift to 2 o'clock, then reel it in hard". Does she think I'm an idiot? No bait? The fish is just going to bite at an empty hook? I guess I'm an idiot because I stood there on the bank of the Kenai river flopping the line in at 11 and yanking at 2. Nuts.
The next day we decided to be land lubbers and go hiking. Here is the gang at Kenai National Wildlife Refuge.
We found a great hike with spectacular views of the Russian river canyon.
We had one last target bird to find - American Three-toed Woodpecker. They like burned out forests.
