Bows and dollies and cohos
(Maple Grove, MN)
Fished the Kenai and Russian Rivers in Alaska last year with my buddies. We caught more than 1000 rainbows, dollies and cohos on tenkara. Even drift boated on the Kenai with a Kiyose rod and caught a 26 inch dolly. Many bows were over 18 inches on the Amago and Kiyose. Biggest bow was 24 while the biggest coho was 28. Like walking a wolf. Blast x 1000!

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
