Martin is in Europe with the kids, so I went Dipnetting at Chitina with David. This guy (in the picture below) and his friend were fishing "our" spot, so we had to wait until they finished catching their 30 salmon each, which they did some 50 hours after they started. Then it was our turn. We got about 10 fish each in five hours, not bad for a slow run. At 1 pm we stopped, gutted the fish and cleaned them, carried them back up the trail to our bikes, biked the 2 miles (one hour) back to the car, put the fish into the coolers with ice and loaded up the car, and drove the six hours back to Fairbanks, arriving around 11 pm. Slept real well.
