Mike, thanks for the compliments. Regarding "semi-retired", truth is I feel like I am working more now than when I owned my own business for 49 years. Does keep me out of trouble though and the pocket money sure feels fun spending on fishing stuff! Was recently fortunate to purchase a Bob Godshall custom 5/6 rod and line and another used rod built by Rob Meiser which he refurbished the cork on along with buying a new Hardy Cascapedia 8/9. Next scheduled trip is to Alaska and BC for steelies end of April. Said to my buddy today I almost might want to start packing!

I understand your enthusiasm about going on a trip
About a month before my salmon hunt I'm not really at home, I'm planning and packing and daydreaming about the trip
Fun times ahead !!
I forgot to mention ... nice wing mount too

Nice! Thanks for Top view as well.

I too will be in BC, but in June 😉

You make known to me the path of life;
in your presence there is fullness of joy;
at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
