The Fly Fisherman Magazine 2017 Gear Guide has recently hit the newsstands! I’m happy to see that an image from our Alaskan shoot last year made the cover. This image of angler Camille Egdorf was taken in while on location shooting for Yellow Dog Fly Fishing Adventures. We were searching for the elusive Sea Run Rainbow Trout with Rick Matney when she hooked into this gem. It was a great trip with great friends. I hope to one day see to the temperate rainforest of the great white north again, it really is the last of the salmon (and steelhead) forests.
Head down to your local shop and grab a copy, or better yet, get a yearly subscription and never miss an issue.
I was certainly happy to get the call to head to Southeast Alaska this past spring. This remote temperate rainforest is a place of adventure, wonder and some of the best wild steelhead fishing around. The weather, the climate, the tides, the terrain and just trying to get there also makes it one of the most vigorous angling exploits imaginable, the temperate rainforest is not for the faint of heart. However, besides the constant uphill battle, this is also one of the most thrilling adventures a fly angler can have! It was a fun week of crab, prawns, and steelhead. I can’t wait to return.

KING SALMON | NUSHAGAK RIVER, ALASKA Protect Bristol Bay Alaska
Chinook Salmon (or King Salmon) in full colors is a beautiful sight to see. These fish have only one job: to travel back to spawn and to die. They unselfishly and willingly give up their life so the next generations can survive and the ecosystem can utilize its decaying body to gain nutrients. The cycle of life, it is so fragile.
