Matt's parents just left after coming to visit and see Maddie in all her cuteness. We drove to Homer (a fishing village about 4.5 hours south), played golf (I drove the golf cart and watched), did a little shopping, played cards and went dip netting.
So on our way down to Homer we stopped at the mouth of the Kenai river, in the pouring rain, and gave it a shot. We borrowed some equipment and got bundled up (while Matt's parents were on Maddie duty).

thankfully the rain stopped just as we were getting started.
|It was a mad house - so many people! |
You can see all the people in the water just 5 feet from each other - on both sides of the river.
|That's me in the green jacket. |
Don't I look like such a pro as I wait for a fish to find it's fate in my net?
|Matt came to help me after I caught one. I'm clubbing it on the head to kill it. |
I couldn't do it at first, but quickly got over it. Those poor fish.
|Some of our future dinners!|
I officially feel very Alaskan.
