Alaskan Fly Fishing Perspective

Alaska2.jpgWalking along the riverbank looking out over a sea of bright orange filling the water I feel as if I have been transported back in time to a wilderness so wild and untouched that it almost feels wrong to be here. Just as I’m about to cast out to the hundreds of Sockeye Salmon that make the river look like an impressionistic painting, something catches my eye in the dirt at my feet. I bend down for a closer look and realize I’m staring at the imprint of an animal so large I can barely conjure up a mental picture of its mass.

On the southern tip of the South American continent Patagonia is home to some of the best trout fishing in the world. There are many great options for the adventurous angler but if you want giant sea-run Brown Trout head to the archipelago of Tierra del Fuego and the Rio Grande river.

The Exumas offer relief from the winter chill

Exumas9.jpgShorter days and biting cold temperatures make fishing in the winter months an unpleasurable experience most of the time. When tying flies, reading Gierach gets tiring, and cabin fever sets in there is only one option, head to the tropics. A week of wading the flats for Bonefish and Permit can refresh the mind and spirit, keeping you rejuvenated until the long awaited spring thaw. The Bahamas have long since been a great tropical fly fishing location offering large numbers of Bonefish close to the United States. Andros Island and Grand Bahama have the reputation as world class Bonefish destinations but there are still undiscovered gems in the Bahamas with eager Bones. The Exuma Islands are a chain of 365 Cays stretching 120 miles long with large uncrowded flats and mangrove coastline. The extensive flats have seen far less pressure than than most other islands in the Bahamas and the Bonefish are less weary to the saltwater angler.

Fall Fly Fishing on the Green River

Green4_1.jpg Boasting staggering numbers of up to 22,000 fish per mile, the Green river below the Flaming Gorge Dam offers the angler the unique opportunity of catching a high quantity of large trout. The river also has a reputation of extremely fickle and spooky trout that refuse flies like a fussy child. The fall offers a time to fish the Green with relatively few people compared to the crowded summer season. On October 18th a group of friends and I arrived at the river in search of the legendary pigs that inhabit the Green river.
