Short Runs & Season Closures Don't Mean The End, Just The Beginning of Something Else

Posted 07-30-2012 at 04:31 PM by Hardyreels

That's the situation facing many people here in my part of Alaska. I imagine that many gear fishermen are out there heaving lures into the high and turbid waters and some are probably hauling out some Sockeye to boot. Me, I'm a fly fisherman who uses quiet little salmon flies to catch his fish and these conditions are not conducive to my having great success. With that reality in mind we decided to do some traveling, this was early July 2012. The trip started with a drive along Turnagain Arm of...
