Also on my bucket list of places to visit. Thanks for posting so many pictures. Sorry to hear about your halibut trip though. Those big waves can get anybody. Looks like a great idea to change your other trip to a fly fishing trip. Looks like you learned quickly because those kings on a fly rod are not easy to land. Congrats on those 2 nice looking fish.
