Merc is at it again

Mike just got back from fishing the Kenai and he had a great trip with 3 other fishing buddy's. They fished mainly the mainstem of the Kenai and got into the Dolly's and rainbows with a few Salmon mixed. Lots of Dolly's in the 18-25" range were landed and the largest Rainbow was 8lb toad, followed closely by Al's 26 incher. Enjoy!



Nice Dolly

Hungry bear!

San Juan River Forum member Gregg, was kind enough to send me a bunch of photos to put on Aztec Anglers blog. He is a fish catching machine on the San Juan River. I'll let the pictures speak for him.

The Snakemen of the San Juan

John and Nick spent 3 days on the river with Chip. Lots of fish were caught and a great time was had by all. Chip called me and said it was one of the funnest trips he has ever guided on, thanks John and Nick! I'll let the pictures tell the story.

Dang fish still ate the ant!

Chip was out with a couple clients and were tearing them up on big foamers. This fish, with snake sticking out of his mouth, still came up and ate the ant!! What was he thinking?
