The trip was great. The lodge, the guide, the food, the staff – all wonderful. The fishing was not as great as we hoped although good. Very tough conditions, more physical, and not as many fish as we or the other guests expected. The fish are as big as advertised however.
About Patrick Kissel
I really enjoy playing a part in someone’s vacation, knowing I helped them have an experience of a lifetime and put a smile on there face is very rewarding to me. Whether it’s a once in a lifetime trip or you are a well traveled individual feel free to call me to talk about any of our fishing trips or for advice on anything fishing. I am here to help!
Belize is a really cool destination that I will surely be back to visit again soon. The lodge is very accommodating to the angler wanting to fish 6 days straight or if you want to do just a few days guided fishing and do your own thing the other days.
Lago Strobel, or as many have come to know it Jurassic Lake, is a bucket list trip for any serious angler and worth traveling to experience at least once in ones lifetime. I have been fortunate to fish here twice now and will certainly be back…
Golden Dorado had been on my list to catch on a fly rod for many years due to their aggressive nature, one of a kind gold appearance, and fly shredding teeth.
In my opinion the best way to experience all that Alaska has to offer is to go with one of the premier fly out lodges. The variety of fishing and what you will experience here in a week is unrivaled. You will be planning your return as soon as your schedule allows. I guarantee it!
I learned this brine from one of our pilots Bernie, who has been guiding and flying bush planes in Alaska since 1981. It is a simple recipe and good base to start with. You may add or change ingredients as you experiment with it.
Nothing makes me happier than booking a trip for guys and seeing the photos and the excitement and appreciation for what I love. Wild steelhead are an amazing fish that takes some skill and determination to catch.
This fishing trip met all my expectations for a unique fly fishing adventure.
I spent a lot of time trying to find a good archery hunt for moose that wouldn’t break the bank but also be a challenge and I found just that with the help of Outdoors International and my consultant Patrick Kissel.
Three friends and I spent a great week floating the Salmon and Aniak Rivers in Alaska. Great guides, food, excellent fishing, and comfortable equipment.
This was a lovely salmon fishing trip on Kodiak Island in Alaska, We caught fish each day Great food provided by the lodge.
We had three days of fishing and had an amazing time.
I asked if he were given one river to guide steelhead on for the rest of his life what it would be and he answered without hesitation “The Skeena”.
I thought to myself how quick this trip went as we loaded up the charter plane with our luggage and fish boxes filled with fresh frozen fish. Just like that, another adventure is behind us and more memories made, man I love Alaska!
Halibut are an unusual game fish that many people have on their bucket list or list of fishing trips they do each year and rightfully so!
Just writing this story makes me want to load up and get back out there…damn you winter steelhead!
Halibut is a mild flavored fish and can be made a variety of ways. This is healthy white flaky meat that is full of omega 3 fatty acids and high in protein. This recipe can be used on cod and rockfish as well!
When was the last time you’ve been on an adventure? I mean a real adventure, diving into something new and maybe a little bit of the unknown.
Awesome guide that went above and beyond. Incredible Salmon River access.
I’d do it again in a heartbeat. The water was fantastic, scenery even better and Brent was over the top. Idaho is a cool place brother.
