Dani Morey tells me. “It was my privilege to be coaching Cheyenne Stronach when she hooked her first ever salmon! Then hooked another which she lost, only to follow up with a third fish! One 9lb and one 6lb, all from Gean Tree. What a day, one she’ll remember forever. We finished with 5 fish in total, the biggest a 14lber caught by Cheyenne, a 6lber to her brother Gordo and a 6lb to fellow committee member Sue Cunningham.”
