    4. See a foreign country
    5. Climb a mountain
    6. Hear a newborn's cry

    What's your list?

    Alaska RiverTrout Fly Fishing:

    Above Pools :Water Bends Best Bait: Little Drake Stonefly
    Fallen Brush Best Bait: Copper John Nymph
    Stone Shelves Best Bait: Rooster Trail
    Plunge Pools Best Bait: Ear Nymph

    Alaska Ocean Trout fishing:

    Ketchikan, known as the "Salmon Capitol of the World" is perched on the edge of Alaska fishing waters that harbor five unique type of Salmon, the legendary Chinook, or King, the Red or Sockeye, the Silver or Coho, the Pink or Humpback, and the Chum.

    Fishing at the Mouth of the Columbia River: in the perpetual fog banks and
    surging tides of the Pacific Northwest:


    salmon and steelhead fishing.The year's first salmon begin appearing in the lower river in good numbers in March. These are "spring salmon" running 15-30 pounds and are considered the hardest fighting

    Alaska Halibut "America's favorite fish"

    They can grow to more than 8 ft long and 700 lbs. Halibut weighing in at more than 100 pounds are often called "Whales", "Soakers", or even "Barn Doors", while smaller halibut, less than 20 pounds, are often called "Chickens".

    "And as a reward after all of that 'work' !"

    Masquite wood-Grilled Halibut with Delmonico's potatoes woodhole baked beans,slabs of sourdough bread and a bunch of Anchor Steam Beer.After all of that a deep camp chair beside the roaring river to put me to sleep !

    I've done everything on your list except climb a mountain. I assume you mean "mountain climbing" when you say that. No desire here.

    You jumped out of an airplane? I really want to do that. I thought about doing it this summer while I'm in Utah...but I don't think the kid's parents would appreciate me having their kid do the same. So it will wait.

    Caught a small white marlin. It was nothing like you see on TV. :D

    Besides, how has anyone living in Florida not already done this?

    Hey, I'm in Plant City, not quite the area you can get a marlin!:D

    I have a 10lb bass, caught a 36" snook, kingfish, wahoos, dolphin and cobias. Next trip to the Keys and I will try.

    Wahoo was a neat fish. Never even knew there was such a fish until we caught one. Tasted pretty good too.

    I have about 30 lbs of dolphin in my freezer right now.
    Be Not Afraid.

    1) Publish my first novel...and then many more after that. :D

    2) Visit a foreign country (preferably Italy, Spain, Ireland...England, too, of course)

    3) See my stepson win the Super Bowl...or become President, whichever comes first! :p

    4) Learn to play the guitar (although I doubt this will happen, but who knows)

    5) Learn to scuba dive (but I'd have to have one of the damn shark-sticks with me...)

    6) At some point, win the Bram Stoker Award for Best Novel.

    7) See my award-winning novel made into a movie!

    8) Write a screenplay (maybe from my award-winning novel).

    9) Party with Edward Lee until we're both stinking drunk. And then we crank-call Stephen King and make fart-noises on the phone to him.

    10) Cure Shannon of her interminable snarkiness. (Kidding!)
