    No romantic story, just explicit porn pictures.

    Crossed one off the bucket list.

    Congrats on getting the first. Now get after some chrome. It's not over-rated among discriminating fishermen. Keep on keeping on.

    Next on the bucket list, it has to be a Chinook. I brought the 2-hander on my trip but the water was too small. So a Chinook on the fly and a steelhead on the swing.

    I landed 4 kings this year on the fly, all were incidental while fishing for other species. The one I landed in the salt was small, but a Lynch so I great surprise. The other three were all while steelheading, they were big and doggity and again worth the surprise. Good luck to you and the next check mark.
