S.P. and the Little Osprey Nino. 3rd Week is the charm.

Anchorage Alaska is a beautiful place for sure but, February can test the metal of even the longtime resident of “The Great Land”. This time of year you are getting skied out, the days are not getting longer fast enough, you are sick to tears of shoveling snow and there is no local fishing in your foreseeable future. I should know, I lived it for 40 some odd winters. Couple that with an advanced case of Permititus and the only logical solution is a trip to Mexico and TPC!
John and Lynda Baker visited us a few years back and pledged to return so this year they made good on their promise. Maybe sitting in the Slouse Box at the Alaska State fair last September and enjoying some great live music (and a few frosty brews) with Kaye and I helped make up their minds, who knows? Any way they took the red and made it all the way to Punta Allen in one long day. The effort was rewarded with John’s first Permit ever and what claims will be the design of his first tattoo ever. John doesn’t recall the agreement however.
