Silver Salmon Sunday

A Silver Sunday at the Kenai - Drove to Homer Alaska on Saturday (228 miles one way), picked up some paintings of mine, then backtracked to Soldotna, restocked a gallery with Prints, Cards and a few paintings. Then to my folks Cabin on the Kenai. My brother Chris and I finished off putting the rain gutters up Sat night. Sunday morning off fishing we go, first cast "Bamm" Silver on. Turned out to be the only one we caught. Chris is going to pickle it with a new recipe he has, can't wait to taste it.
