My spot would be the Amazon. Big cool fish, and little ones with many many teeth.
Don't know about the Amazon, but the rest I track. "Dollars to Donuts" Ard doesn't go anywhere without 'Boss.'

In America it would be Alaska for some Salmon of various types.
In North America would have to be Labrador for HUGE Brookies, Artic Char, Pike and Atlantics.

On the leading edge of the striper migration, but not all those scout schoolies, the cow herds..... Or a steelhead river in prime shape....

AMERICA. Some geographically challenged posts here -

Alaska for me. You can go "helicopter fishing" up there from Anchorage, so it's just like the OP said: "air-dropped to fish".

Been a few years, but we flew from the Anchorage airport by chopper, and in half an hour were over remote streams full of salmon. We'd fly up the stream looking for fish, land when we saw them, and leave when the bears came! Great fun, and should be on your wish list if you like salmon fishing.

Thanks for the thread; good idea.

addendum: found a photo (mystery face); flyrod leaning behind me:

Yellowstone.

Now, that assumes the air drop includes at least a parachute or some other means of soft landing. If not, next to a local bluegill pond is a shopping center that has a "Mattress Outlet" in it. Aim for aisle 3!

I live in Alaska, but if I could be airdropped to fish anywhere I wanted it would be Klamath Falls Oregon where I grew up & my folks still live. Drop me at their house, & I'll jump in the truck with dad & drive to any little stream to catch 10" trout all day long with him... One more trip with my 83yr old dad in our old stomping grounds is my fishing dream :-)

@chechem: man that looks amazing! That's gives new meaning to "sight fishing." You spot the fish, the bears spot you.

@venceinak: that's the best post IMO. Nothing like wanting more quality time with your father who probably taught you to fish. I know that's the case for me. Be sure to tell him you "dream." It would make his day!

@silvertip8k: that's what dreams are for right?...and long road trips where fishing fantasies make the miles pass...

@Flyfisher for men: BOMBS AWAY!
