Getting old is a bitch, not just because it takes away your mobility, but more so because it takes away your long time friends. Here is a picture I took about 2011 of old friend and Alaskan lodge owner Jerry Pippen, who passed early last summer. We had 4 Russian clients fishing on the Kulic River in October. Jerry was doing a shore lunch for our clients, who as you can see, were sharing the river with several Brown Bears.


Good friend and Master Alaskan guide Joe Klutsch passed on March 13 at his home in King Salmon Alaska. Joe established Katmai Guide Service in 1976 and became a Master Guide in Alaska in 1995. I had the honor of booking for and becoming fast friends with Joe in the late 1990's. This man enjoyed the outdoors and life as a whole as much as anyone I have ever met! Joe headed the Alaskan Professional Hunting Association for many years. A big baseball fan,Joe & I spent many hours trading hunting, fishing and baseball stories. He had an easy and infectious laugh. I will always remember that laugh & we would carry on laughing until our eyes were wet! Joe's son Joey, who has worked with Joe in his hunting and fishing guide service for 20 yrs will carry on Katmai Guide Service. Just as a reference, my Alaska registered hunting guide license number 15 years ago was 6913...Joe's was 91! For full info on the legend of Joe Klutsch and his life visit their website at

Always wanted to photoshop a butterfly into this photo I took of a very young Brown Bear cub on the Cook Inlet coast of Alaska.

18 & 19 lb Peacock Bass caught fishing with Emu Outfitting and TC Fishing in Brazil's Amazon during the month of November, 2021 on our private Indian Lands concession. When the guides report 18 & 19 lb fish, it is a sign of honesty on the part of the outfitter's staff. I have seen many guides over the last 25 years report fish in the high teens as 20 lb'ers trying to impress the anglers in order to get better tips.
And yes...the gentleman in the gray hat shown with 3 big fish had a hell of a week, catching two 18 lb'ers, three 19 lb'ers and a 22 lb Peacock!
