At the end of July, hundreds of friends, family, and fishing guides gathered for a proper goodbye to Matt Price, a larger than life character who died in a cabin fire a year ago this week. He was 49. The evening turned into a rip-roarin' good time with a live band, pig roast, and kegs-a-plenty, but it began with the aerial spreading of Matt's ashes in the Naknek River. Four de Havilland Beavers flew in formation past the Blue Fly's dock where dozens were gathered. "Cheers to Matt!"
