First, I want to thank everyone who entered our promotion to win a Sage 6wt. rod and Hatch or Abel reel. Last week, we randomly drew a name out of all the entries and are pleased to announce that William Becker of Hudson, Ohio was the lucky winner. Congratulations William! I hope you’ll enjoy your new rod and reel for many years to come.

At this moment, I’m here in Alaska. With the help of my excellent crew, we are just putting the final touches on the Alaska Rainbow Lodge. Everything is in good working order and ready for another outstanding season of fishing the Katmai National Preserve—and I really look forward to fishing with you this summer. Please let me know if I can help you in any way. We are always just a phone call or email away.

Travel safe and I’ll see you all in a few weeks.
