Alaska is a fly fisherman’s utopia. The wide range of species available for anglers to catch on the fly is among the highest of any destination for cold-water species. Even better are the trophy size fish that you encounter here. I don’t miss the 7 days a week guiding in Alaska, but I do miss the beautiful scenery and amazing fishing. When I was guiding in Alaska back in 2006, I don’t think I’ve ever experienced more the true feeling of living than those 4 1/2 months I spent in the Bristol Bay area guiding. The closest way to describe it was utopia or my fly fishing dreams I have on a regular basis fly fishing exotic uncharted trout waters. Its one of my proudest moments as a fly fisherman to have fished these godly waters.
Check out this fly fishing video on a remote headwater stream in Alaska. I think you’ll get a better understanding of what I got to experience, and It might encourage you to make a trip out there. I totally recommend doing it sooner than later.
Let me know what you think guys.
