The day after judging our rabbits at Lambtown, Randy and Allen flew to Alaska. Allen is kind enough to share their trip details with us:
"Hello from Alaska! We are spending our last few days in Alaska judging the Alaska State Convention and speaking at the first ever Alaska Judge's Conference. Our week has been excellent, doing what we love best in Alaska... fishing! The short season when Red Salmon travel up the rivers from the ocean to spawn is flocked annually by fishermen from around the world. Randy Cler, Alaskan and ARBA Judge, took us to his favorite fishing spots for three days of intense fishing this week. We spent most of our time soaked and bone-chilled from the rain on the river, but it was well worth it. Each day, we caught our limit. The Kenai River (3 hours south of Anchorage) was jammed full of fishermen this week, despite the weather. Alaskans says this summer has been colder than normal; in fact, we saw fresh snow on the peaks of surrounding mountains! Though the sun stays out until almost midnight this time of year, it isn't a California sun by any means. Nevertheless, for Randy and me, the break from the "Fresno Furnas" was nothing short of awesome!"
