“Yes, it’s awesome, but let’s be honest: it kind of sucks too. You know Alaska is a beautifully colorful place, yet a bleak grey has taken hold.

“Season edges are the most emotionally compromising for anglers. It’s when any day things are going to start picking up and turn into a full-scale fishing bonanza. But it’s not there yet. Or is it?
