Hi Ray! Well, the 2 pound grayling shot didn’t turn out…really hard to sit in a kayak, safely bring in the fish, and take a picture on your iPhone while the poor fish bounces around on your spray skirt! I hooked this wee one (and many, many more) on the Kathleen River outside of Haines Junction on Thursday night. It was safely released, and I met a guy from Ontario on the river who has never been in your shop, but might now because I told him to go there!  Glad I was wearing your hat! Susan
