Twelve years ago we were joined by Emmett and his two sons Sean and Max. The boys were 16 and 14 years old and full of infectious enthusiasm for their first ocean fishing experience. It was a great trip and we parted with hope that we would see them again soon. Well soon turned into 12 years and Emmett returned without the boys, instead he brought two young men Sean and Max as well as his son in law Andrew. The boys had gone to university, graduated, (started shaving) all in what seemed the blink of an eye. What didn’t change was their enthusiasm and once again we had a great trip. A run of hard fighting spring salmon some great halibut and good weather all contributed for another memorable trip. On parting we made Emmett promise that another 12 years can’t go by before we see them again, he promised!
