Pittsburgh Sportsman

Two anglers from Pittsburgh, PA (Go Steelers!) arrived yesterday evening eager to hit the river and catch salmon. We fished a short while for sockeye landing six, then ran a short distance to try our luck at the kings. Almost immediately we hooked a big one and after an epic battle that included many jumps, we netted the 26-pounder.  Maybe it was the jet lag or Chelsea's great cooking, but it was late and the guys very tired. 
 This morning we caught limits of sockeye in short order and dedicated the rest of the afternoon to kings. We landed one nice keeper as well as several small ones before the wind kicked up and with a full fish box we happily called it a short day.
