Pictures of the Day: Graeme in the Last Frontier

Graeme in Alaska

This morning, I’m trying to come to terms with the fact that I’m jealous of a middle-schooler. We’ve posted several times about the travels and skills of young angler Graeme Sharp—we’ve showed him with a lovely steelhead, his first bonefish, and a hard-to-handle Exuma bone he caught a year later.

Yesterday, Graeme’s dad, John, sent us a bunch of pictures from their recent trip to Copper River Lodge in the Iliamna region of Alaska, where they fished the Copper and Gibraltar Rivers. I guided on those very waters in the mid-90’s, so these photos brought back a lot of memories. And they once again demonstrated that this is a young angler to be reckoned with. Check out the slideshow below; John Sharp was sure to mention that each picture is a different fish. Way to go, Graeme!
