The Rodfather and I leave Sunday for The Yukon. We are going to fish around Whitehorse for a few days, then head to Anchorage where Bill wants to buy some fur: beaver, marmot, bobcat. He flies back to Wyoming on the 6th. I'm continuing to Homer to attend the Kachemak Bay Writers' Conference and try for some king salmon. I'll let you know how it goes. There's no cell or wi-fi for a couple thousand miles, but I'll do a fishing report from Homer. This will be Rocket and my last trip together as a team, as Henderson joins us in July. I hope Rocket is nicer to the puppy than Sweets was to Rocket back in the day. She never liked him, and sent him several times to the vet with bite marks. Adios.
