It rains a little bit in Alaska. The center portion of our trip was a soggy adventure. We did not let it slow us down, we continued working hard and were rewarded from time to time with fish.

I got more comfortable as the trip went on and started to shoot much better in the rain. My 7d was a champ, i drenched it multiple times and had zero problems, great piece of equipment.
