Nothing crazy, guided Mark Few, Gonzaga coach, many times and met Kasey Kahne when he fished with our crew in AK.

Ran into an armada of boats around George HW Bush fishing the flats in the Florida keys when he was president.

Had the experience of taking Jimmie Johnson and Casey Mears fishing when guiding out of Elfin Cove.  They caused quite the stir in the village with the young ladies.  Can't say we caught any huge halibut, but lots of salmon and bottom fish.  Managed to win a few coins off of them on the pool table.  Both were down to earth fellows the entire trip.  Also had the opportunity to meet Steve Largent, Karl Malone, and Larry Csonka.

My father in law was a fishing guide in Port Hardy B.C for 30 yrs.  He took Kevin Costner, some dallas cowboys front office guys including a cheer leader,  WWE star Shawn Michaels and his wife, Jim Shockey and Wojo on trips.

 I ran into Buhner on a coastal river a few years back. I recognized him but didn't say anything, treated him like a regular fisherman, as I would have wanted to be treated.   
 He was pretty cool and eager to chat about fishing.

 On a side note. Years ago my wife and I introduced my best friend to a co-worker of my wife. They hit it off and ended up getting married a few years later.

 One night after they were married the 4 of us went out in downtown Seattle where my wife and her worked. We had to stop by their office for something, and while we were in her office I noticed a pic on her desk. It was a pic of her and Jay Buhner at the McDs in NorthBend. I thought that was really cool.

 A few months later my wife and I were at their house for dinner and were watching the M's game. During the game my friends wife points at the TV and says, "that's the guy who I had take the picture of me and Buhner". It was Griffey Jr. :chuckle:

 I told her who it was and she said that made a lot of sense, since Jay kept flipping the guy taking the picture a bunch of sh!t at McDs when she asked Buhners friend to take their picture......lmfao. :chuckle:
