Greetings from Georgia:
I am writing this report from my hotel room in north Georgia, after which I will continue driving to Orlando Florida where I will be spending three days at the I-Cast show. If you are in Orlando or if you plan to attend the show, I can be reached on my cell phone or at the TFO rod booth, please come by and say hello. The weather has been really hot in NC and now it is storming all of the way to Florida, I am looking forward to heading up to Alaska later this summer.
My friends Tony weaver from Anchorage, and Lucien LaFond from Normandy France, just returned from 10 days fly fishing for King Salmon out on the Aleutian Islands. Below is a report and a couple of pictures from their trip. I love my job, stay tuned for a show report from I-Cast.
Lucien LaFond HOODOO King on Fly
Just returned to Anchorage from ten days fishing the Aleutians. The fishing was slow this year due to the high snow pack and higher runoffs. Lucien and I managed to find fish however, and spent most of our time fishing the coast in remote streams. I would consider the king fishing slow by Alaska standards, but we did manage to find fish. We fished several small streams and found pools of fish that took flies readily. The smaller streams fished well with the single hand rod and most fish we took we saw and watched them "eat" many fish were taken on a stripped fly! Needless to say I consider every trip to the peninsula an adventure as the scenery is as powerful as the fishing. It brings me much joy to fish "off the grid", like the old Star Trek by-line "to go where no man has gone before" brings me much joy. Amen.
Tony Weaver early July King on fly
My client Pål Krogvold from Norway was fly fishing the northern rivers of the Cola Peninsula in late June and early July for trout on fly, he just sent me these pictures of a couple of nice Browns.
