HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEK
This group has been fishing the same week at the Upper Camp for over fifteen years We have had a lot of fun over the years and now some of the group are in their 80s and are simply getting to old to fish Alaska. We caught some great fish and had some bitter sweet moments. Knowing that this could be their last big fishing trip made every day that much more special.
