... I can't keep anything over 29 inches. Kyle gets it in the boat. It is about 27 inches and I tell him good enough. I am done for the day.

Bob and I met our guide on the Kasiloff river. I hooked a salmon, but the line broke just as the fish got close to the boat. And that was the only salmon we saw all day. 8 hours on the river! But we had a good time on s beautiful day. Tomorrow we ...
