Default Re: Do I Need A Special Rod For Alaska?

my ak rod selection usually is this-

7'9" 4 weight for smaller stream char and bows
9' 5 weight for char and bows on bigger water and for grayling
9' 8 weight for all salmon except chinook
9' 9 weight for chinook

and, as ard mentioned, i would go 9' 10 or 11 weight for kenai river chinook
and bear spray.

my dad used to work for fish and game in alaska back in the 70's and one of his jobs was to hike up remote streams and count the population of different salmon species that were in there. back then him and his partner both carried 12 gauge shot guns over there shoulder as well as a steel bell on there belt. the bell let the natives know of there presence, and, according to him, saved them from having to use the gun countless times.
