Regrets keep on coming
June’s column was a recount of the difficulties Mrs. Poynor and I experienced over the Memorial Day weekend in getting to our newly acquired cabin.

Fishing for action
Generally, there is plenty to do during a trip to the beach at the mouth of the Kenai River after July 10. Keeping fully occupied requires nothing more than donning the suitable waterproof attire (which will quickly fill with water), grabbing your dipnet and wading into the water to snatch reds out of the current. The effort keeps most folks busy either working their nets or cleaning fish. The effort involved in dipnetting and taking care of the catch makes finding a way to spend slack time unnecessary; at least that’s the case during a normal year.
