Re: Dream Fly Fishing Trip for Father/Son

Here's my 2 cents worth.

A few years back I took my son to Alaska. We flew into Achorage, rented a motor home then hit the Kenai Peninsula. Even if we didn't catch any fish, the scenery alone...

Re: Advice for Banff / Jasper

Re: So You Want to be a Fishing Guide

Re: Ketchikan Trout Options

You should be able to find some trout up at Ward lake. South of town there is a hike up to a stocked lake. I forget the name. Take the road to the end and there's a parking lot and a trail head.

Re: where are the most famous place to fly fish?

It has to be the Kenai river at the confluence with the Russian river. Right near the sanctuary. Spend the day casting a line with hundreds of your new, closest friends.

Re: favorite fly fishing movie

It's not a fly fishing movie. Man's favorite sport with Rock Hudson and Paula Prentiss is a funny fishing based movie. Considering that it was filmed in the 1960s, it was pretty racy for it's time....

Re: Fly fishing doesn't have to be expensive

It wasn't my intention to confuse anyone. My perception is that many non fly anglers think that fly fishing is an expensive undertaking. So I was trying to peek behind the curtain at Oz and let...

Re: Beware! They will even take your fishing gear as 'colateral.'
