Fishing guide Patrick Kissel was on a river near Fairbanks Alaska with his new girlfriend. He had told her they were going to float the river and go fishing for kings. The reality turned out to be that the river had been reduced to a tiny stream and they ended up having to both drag their raft over rocks for miles and miles. I asked him if that had a negative impact on his relationship. “ You know we are still together. On the river, honestly, I don’t think I would have wanted anybody else out there. Even though I am the one who got us into that predicament, she realized we are in the middle of Alaska, what are you going to do? Get mad at each other? Quit walking? We pretty much ate our food, kept dragging the next day and fished one other spot. It was like this river was just a creek. There were some spots we would float maybe 300 yards and then we would get up and drag the raft again. Every bend had rainbows and graylings. It was an incredible river because who else would float it? Who else was dumb enough? We finally got to the end, saw one little group of kings and hardly got a chance to fish them but finally got off the river and had to drive back down to Seward. I had a guide trip that morning at 6 AM. But as far as the relationship, she was awesome.
