Come with me beneath the surface and see how coho salmon, dolly varden and rainbow trout react to the Yakima Bait 3.0 MagLip!
If you have never fished Alaska, it should certainly be on your bucket list!
The state is rich in salmon fishing hot spots, and the incredible Togiak River has to considered as one of the best of the best. Here’s a little action from my most recent summer of guiding up there…
What this rainbow trout does will will make you rethink a few things…I shot this underwater footage last month in Alaska with my Water Wolf HD camera. Interesting stuff!!
The beast was caught in New Zealand by an 18-year-old kid who goes by the handle of @_keepin_it_kool_wif_booth on Instagram. He is one fishy dude! Give him a follow!
And while you’re staring at this pic (I did so for about 10 mins straight!), check out how perfect it is…not a scale out of place and beautifully chrome. And then there’s that crazy fat body and tiny little head.
What a fish!!
In my mom’s garage, I found the old 5’3″ Fenwick Fenglass fly rod I’ve had for a million years…complete with a small pink indicator and a tattered old Hare’s Ear nymph still tied on.
As a kid, I loved that short little fly rod because l could make regular, overhand casts even in tight cover. You’d never win a long range casting competition with it, but the Fenglass is great inside 20 feet.
Trout aren’t the only critters that call the creek home. I spotted a couple small bass, a school of suckers, some bluegill and some of my favorite green sunfish. The squaws, however, are the wiliest of them all and were always difficult to catch as a kid. Maybe it’s those big ol’ eyes that make me so tough to fool!
