I have always enjoyed fishing the bridge. I take my eleven year
old son to fish the bridge. Like other fathers before and children
have fished the bridge. We don't need an expensive boat. A bicycle
works just fine. People come from far as wide, they buy a license
for the day, and rent a pole from across the street. For some
fishing in Alaska, even if it is from a bridge, and for a humpy,
is a dream come true. And yes, in the excitement in catching
a fish, a youth will want to get his hook back in the water as
soon as possible, and there is blood, guts, fish eggs, and fishing
line. This is a sign of a good fishing hole. And a hell of a
lot of fun.
So perhaphs the things that needs to be done, is steps on each
corner of the bridge leading to the water. This will prevent
injury of crawling down on wet rocks. Accessible cleaning table
at the bridge. And maybe the guy complaining so much, should
grab a pole and come have some fun to. And Mr. Webb, perhaps
if you are so worried about being run over by a horse, run faster.
