Honaw All-Weather System
When you’re this far back in the wilderness, you know you’re on their terms. That reality was reinforced as you glassed the huge, old boar from across the ridge. Despite the pouring rain, the size of the still-fresh Kodiak tracks you just cut in the sand confirm those terms aren’t up for negotiation. Every sense is on high alert as you ready yourself for the climb up the slope into the whitebark pines that cover the ridge above the river. Beyond the wind and rain, the heart-stopping sound of splashing swings your head back to the water. A push of sockeye moves through a shallow riffle. You make a mental note to bring your fly rod next trip.
