My love for the River and South Central Alaska Fishing and the Wildlife that roams there has always captured both my Heart and fond Memories.

Now again,  I have been drawn back to that fantastic country that never has left my dreams.  

This new and extremely beautiful place has not only plentiful wildlife,  but all 5 species of Salmon,  plus Dolly, Grayling and that great Rainbow Trout.   All of this fresh water fishing is right at the front door and a few steps from the dwelling for this fantastic retreat.

Several other clear flowing streams are nearby.

It’s truly a Flyfisher’s Dream come true!

A Special Moment To Share

It was a moment in my life that happened many years ago, but is as clear in my minds eye as if was just yesterday….

A man and his young son had joined me as a guide, for their father / son fishing adventure, on an interior Alaska River. 

We landed the Jet Boat and they began casting away when I noticed the Dad had disappeared around the corner.
So, I walked to where I could see him.   I was unnoticed by the man,  as he cast his Fly Rod in the true form of a master Fly Fisher.

His cast against the beauty of the landscape was the most beautiful curve in the line and after feeding out his line exactly where he wanted, he laid down the fly, mended his line up and let it drift to the strike.

There was a mist on the water that morning and he had his Pipe lit, his smoke rising in the mist.

It was a divine sight that I had never glimpsed before, nor have I ever since. 

That very scene of a Man in that remarkable setting in his Glory has been etched into my mind all these years, never leaving and frequently reappearing in my thoughts, of that perfect moment. 

Vicky and I are so excited about our new South Central Alaska retreat.   There is magic in a spot like this.  I wanted to share this with all who follow me.
