Great Day at FG
Yesterday I had the opportunity to take an 87 year old terminally ill life-long fisherman out on FG for his first (and perhaps last) Kokanee adventure. At a recent benefit I offered a fishing trip as a prize and it was purchased and given to this older gentleman who really wanted to catch his first Koke. He was a marvelous person, full of hope and sunshine and he left me with far more than I gave him.

After days of rain, snow, cold and wind at the Gorge, HIS day opened with milder temps, calm and sunshine. The Kokanee more than cooperated and I will never forget his joy and excitement of FisfOn! after FishOn! and Koke after Koke on what is likely a last day on the water. I write this post because I know all of you who love the sport and being on the water understand and feel my emotion of spending this special day with him. I will not forget him nor this special day.

Super nice of you to donate a fishing trip and really great that someone thought of donating the trip to that gentleman. What fond memories you will have for years to come.
