Default Long Live the King

Here is a great video produced by "Fly Out Media" that I spotted over on the Orvis Fly Fishing site. If you are interested in the Alaska King Salmon and it's decline in size and numbers in recent years or planning a fly fishing trip to Alaska for Kings, this is an awesome video, a bit long at 15 minutes but well worth the time.

Hi Joe,

Currently we have no shortage of sockeye salmon, rivers here still see runs in the 1 - 3.5 million fish range. It is our King Salmon which have historically never enjoyed the numbers of the other species which are in decline. I haven't killed one for three years and don't know if I ever will again.

That is not to say that we have no kings; last year I released over 20 fish unharmed and expect to catch more this season. If you would like to know more about what and how we are trying to understand the species and the challenges faced by the fish you may enjoy this short article I wrote onto my blog page. Tracking The King

Some of that footage is simply jaw dropping!

Reminds of an old ad that I saw for an outfitter in Alaska...
"Today my client landed four, all over nine inches! Oh, did I mention that here in Alaska we measure 'em between the eyes?"
