Just saw your post.
I have a ten yr old son and my buddy has a 12 year old son and we have been trying to get a Main permit this year. I used to be a guide for a few years on the Main Salmon and ran a kayak school out of Blackadar Boating on the Main back in the late eighties. We have our own 16 selfbailer and all the equip and kayaks, and have boated for years.etc. Would love to maybe hook up for a possible trip if still available. I live most of the year in Guatemala and my son, Max, won't be up until July, I am in Denver as of last night.
fingers crossed if still available!
