I smell bad

After fishing days on end and not showering, what do you expect? But the beard is starting to grow in thick and looking around me, most other people here have thick facial hair and a sort of natural scent. I guess I’m just acclimitizing.

I have been taking pictures and was planning on posting some proof that I am actually in Alaska, but as internet connection is seldom and often shaky, a post is the best I can do for now. I do have some really good pictures I’d like to share and will get them up as soon as I can.

We just got back in from a six day session and will probably spend a day or so in town to regroup. The total salmon count is almost at 100,000 pounds. Not terribly exciting from historical standards, but it’s making a living and there’s still hope for a big run of salmon to come through. That’s what everyone’s hoping for at least.

It’s been pretty tough up to this point, but it’s slowly getting easier. I still have over a month of fishing left, but I imagine it’ll start flying by pretty soon. Which I guess is both good and bad.

Hope all’s well in your corner of the world.
