At the mid point of June Mt brother Tom arrived from Pennsylvania and was our guest through the third week of July. Trips taken during his visit were not fishing oriented (not too much) because he doesn't fish, go figure. I tried to get him involved back in the late 60's and early 70's but he became frustrated easily. He was always a results sort while I was a little more pragmatic about what really equaled results. He quit and still holds to the story that he did so because his brother (me) seemed...

Part 3, Trouble In Paradise;

Posted 11-20-2012 at 06:46 PM by Hardyreels

I spent the remainder of July and the first week of August fishing and scouting for some salmon. What I was doing was getting ready for company again, this time it was some people from this Forum! John & Pam Page, fysh & mrs. fysh, came to Alaska this year. Although I've seen better years to try to impress anyone with the fishing we all had fun and they seemed to be catching fish despite the conditions. Speaking of conditions we had wonderful weather while they were here and of that I was...

Here's Pam sneaking up on what looked like a great place to find a steelhead in this small river.

A Quick Note To Readers;

Posted 11-19-2012 at 05:56 PM by Hardyreels

If you are not using the RSS Feed when viewing blogs here you should give it a try.

It's very easy, look to the sidebar menu at the left of the screen and click 'View RSS Feed', that's it

The feed will only cover the current page so to travel backward through the stories and photos here you need to close the RSS and move to page 2 (for instance) then click the RSS and you're good to go. It is amazing how much better things look on a steady page feed

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...
