Fishing tips, regulations and information you should know prior to your trip.
Targeting Big Alaskan Rainbows
I heard a yell and looked down at Cooper a 16 year old from Colorado who could fish pretty well. He was persistent in fishing a streamer or mouse all day because he was hoping for a big rainbow to grab his fly. His jaw was dropped and eyes wide as he excitedly stuttered, “I’ve got a huge trout!”
I personally don’t think there is a bad time to visit Alaska for fishing during the summer season especially if you choose a good fishing lodge/outfitter. The time you go is dependent on what type of fishing experience you’re looking for and what species you’re most after.
The star of the show when fishing in Patagonia Chile, and a favorite bug to imitate and fish is the Chilean Cantaria Beetle also known as Darwin’s Beetle. If I was given the option to bring one fly to Patagonia it would be a black and red Fat Albert in a size 4.
I had been here before, twice actually years ago. The first time was well worth it, the second not so much and I don’t know why…. the first time I was so excited to check out this new spot. I knew not many people had ever fished this area and I was “kid in a candy store happy” to check it out!
