Come with me beneath the surface and see how coho salmon, dolly varden and rainbow trout react to the Yakima Bait 3.0 MagLip!
In these uncertain times, you occasionally need a nice shot of calm. So, how about this vid I shot one beautiful SW Alaskan evening, with chrome bright coho salmon jumping and rolling all around me?
Okay, so humpies aren’t Alaska’s most beloved salmon. But, I tell you what…throw some topwater at ’em and they’re a blast! YEEEEHAAAAWWW!!! By the way, sorry for the shaky camera work, but I was casting and working the fly with one hand and filming with the other! :)
JD heads north to Alaska for some super fun topwater dry fly salmon action!
So, thanks to Greg Brush of EZ Limit Guide Service in Soldotna, Alaska, I’m going to be totally worthless the rest of the day. I had been very focused on writing my column for Salmon Trout Steeheader Magazine and then I saw these pix from the Kenai River in my inbox. Now, I’ve got a case of the shakes and all I can think about is going king fishing…
And really, who could blame me? After all, the above pic is of a 55.5″x34″ Kenai River king that was estimated to weigh a mind-blowing 86 pounds! I say “estimated” because Brush’s client, Steve Huckey of Arizona released this monster! Click here to read more…
Reilly and I just got back from an epic trip to Kodiak Island, Alaska…check out the video!!
