Bid here for the trip for sam
Well this will be the last post before the final day of the
auction for Sam. Many people have
contacted me about making donations, you can mail a check made out to Sam and
Renee Kennedy to Kennedy, C/O Katrina Henry PO box 563 Forks Wa 98331
In case you missed the previous posts here are the details.
My good friend and fellow fishing guide Sam Kennedy has been
very sick with cancer for some time, and despite good health insurance it has
predictably put his family on the ropes financially. There is a benefit
dinner for him here in Forks on the 7th and lots of guides including
myself have offered to donate trips for auction. I have decided instead of
donating a trip I will be donating a fly caught steelhead, no matter how many
trips it takes, weather or not you have ever cast a fly rod before, post your
bid on the blog and if you are the highest bidder I will take you fishing until
you hook and land a fresh run adult steelhead.
Plenty of nice fish around
The auction will close about 7:00pm on Saturday night. Any bids placed after 5:30 will have to
be placed by phone, if you want to be notified of the highest bib before the
close contact me and we can arrange it.
If you would like to post an online bid before then you can do so at the
bottom of this page by clicking on comments.
Currently the leading bid is $550.00
As For a fishing report, well the weather, river conditions
and fishing have all been good to great for the last week. The water is getting low so you may
want to get a little sneaky.
I bid $600.
I don’t know if this is feasable or not but maybe you can post Sam’s situation on Westfly.com. It might make more people aware of his situation and allow for more donations. I’ll get him some money when I come up in March.
