Remote Alaska Fly Fishing Lodge on the Hoodoo River When you think of fly fishing in Alaska, images of primal beauty take shape in your imagination punctuated by hard fighting fish too numerous to count. In those images is a sense of something pristine and untouched, where isolation and solitude allow for focus and a clearing of the mind.
I have been a dedicated fisherman for 51 years, 40 of those years have been with the exclusive use of fly rods and traditional flies for many species. Since relocating to Alaska I have spent 11 seasons learning the ways of these rivers and the various species of fish that inhabit them. Now I am ready to share my Alaskan fly fishing knowledge with others. If you want to fly fish Alaska, you might as well go with another fly fisherman as your guide. Life here can be challenging, the rivers are wild; winters are long and harsh but only by living this life, do I feel that I can be a useful guide to others. I begin scouting for fish every spring when the ice clears from our rivers and stay on the pulse of the fishing until winter comes again. By doing this I am aware of what species will be available where, and when, as the seasons rapidly change.
