|Where else in the world can you catch 110 sockeye salmon all in just 5 hours, while standing in the river with 5’ hooped gill nets, surrounded by epic scenery?
This year, we had the pleasure of dipnetting the Kasilof River with our 13-year-old triplets and some family friends. They loved it so much, they only let me catch two fish, freeing me up to clean fish and clear their nets so they could get back into the water as soon as possible. I did not mind at all! I would look up now and then and see pure joy as they counted off another catch, dragging the fish onto the beach, and although the work was exhausting, it was worth every bit of it for the joy they all experienced.
Let’s face it, Alaska is a special place. Not only for its abundance of salmon and other wild game that our family enjoys every year but also for its abundant opportunities. Our family has truly been blessed to call Alaska home since 1996 and I cannot imagine another place I would want to grow our family business, or any other people I would want to serve.
I hope you enjoy Alaska’s abundance as the summer wraps up, and that not only your freezers are full, but your hearts are full as well. Filled with great Alaskan memories that will help with the long winter ahead, which is part of the price of admission.
and delivered me from all my fears.”
