  Seeker you lucky SOB.  Probably 10-15 for me, although a few years it's been less than that.  If it was up to me it'd be well over 25 for sure.

I really like salmon.  A lot.  Some people say I have a problem.

I'm going with the 15 to 20 because this year is a test ;)

I generally on get full days on weekends, but do a bunch of evening trips.

I know more than 25 last year. Hoping to repeat that this year but I doubt it will happen with work.

I'm an 11-15 days now.  I used to be well over 25, but all of a sudden, life seems to be getting in the way.  Fishing contributed to a divorce with my first wife.  Now with two kids in tow, I'll try to hold on to this one.  I definitely can't afford another divorce! :-[
Fishing is a matter of timing...  You have to be here yesterday.

I had 30 or more days flogging the water for Salmon last year.  Hoping for 20-25 this year.
