Last week we informed you that we were wrapping up the last fishing day of our 2018 season at Alaska West, mostly to say thanks to all of you who made it such a memorable season. In case you missed it, and joined us on the Kanektok this season, well, thanks!
We may have jumped the gun however, as the final minutes on the water often create some of the most memorable moments of all..
Take the photo above of our good friend and Alaska West regular, Minoru Ichiho, who during the final twenty minutes of the final day of the season hooked into this chunk of a leopard rainbow which, after an impressive fight, he managed to bring safely to hand.
Here’s to good people, great fish, and last casts.
Nice work, Min. Well deserved!
