So What'ya Think Am I Ready?

Recommended Posts

Just sittin' here at home sorting through all my terminal gear for a most epic trip leaving Thursday Sept 18th.

Lot's of egg imitations, those 5 small boxes are all beads in various hues...

 

I'm sooo ready to go! :D

Heh solopaddler, my wife was in Alaska in the spring and brought back a beautiful book entitled ALaska Fishing. It's 450 pages of facts and fish, maps of all the rivers, pictures, lodges etc. and what rivers are prime fishing for the various species of fish up there. Details on 300 best fihing locations. The best lures recommended by the guides etc. for the individual fish. It was written by Alaska's top guides. Check www.publishers design.com isbn #192917011-4

Good luck and bring some warm clothing. I envy you and I am sure a lot of others will as well.

wow sounds like a trip of a lifetime,did you get any tips on colours up there for roe , and the imitations???, asking because I noticed all you choices are based on say, reds,pinks,oranges....no greens or chartruesses/yellows in the mix.

 

Can't wait to see the report after that trip,many would love to do that for sure :worthy::Gonefishing:

Oh man solo im so pumped you invited me to come on this epic trip with you..... :clapping:

 

Seriously, how much would it cost me..... like 3/4 coffees and we split gas?

 

All kidding aside you are doing another one of my top trips. Actually I think you have done them all...

 

Looks like an amazing report in the works! Oh and I think you need more Maxima leader material because you only seem to have 500 yards of it, wicked stuff isnt it?

Mainly floatfishing and flyfishing, but yeah I've got a box of spinners and pixie spoons just for fooling around.

Only single hooks allowed in AK though...pain in the butt to switch everything over to siwash.

Nope, not too many greens/chart for sure. I'm fishing with a friend who's been doing this trip for a bunch of years, he pretty much told me what to use..

Believe it or not it's not going to be that expensive, we're doing the whole trip on our own...

(and yeah, Maxima rocks :) )

Thanks Rene, and good guess, we'll be fishing the upper Kenai and a couple other lesser known rivers further down the peninsula for steelhead and coho.

 

 

Nice trip, take lots od pictures. Good luck.

 

By the way where did you get the circled boxes with the beads.

Mike,

 

Taking any hitchhiking OFNers? Shall I have the sign made out Kenai river, Alaska? And where's my best bet to be seen on your route?

 

Okay, where's the extra batteries for the camera and don't for get the memory cards!

 

Serious, sounds like another great trip in the works for sure. (Very Envious)

 

Look forward to the fish porn when you get back.
