The Leopard Rainbow is not only a
beautiful trout, it is a hard fighter and loves to jump. Between
tangling your line in a tree, wrapping around a rock or a wild
jump - they can be a challenge to land. The bigger trout are as
good or better a challenge to land as a large salmon. Their heart
stopping runs and sheer strength make for a formidable fight.
There are so many fishing options,
it's really is hard to decide what do next. There were many times
I felt like a kid in a candy store - with the door locked and
me inside. What should I do now? Sockeye, Chums, Pinks, Kings,
Dollies or Trout? They all sound good ...
"Pace yourself" - I kept
telling myself. It's a lot harder the first few days - as everything
is so different and you're anxious to sample every species and
every method of fishing. After the first day or maybe two, you
will settle into the groove of the camp, long Alaskan days and
the plethora of fishing opportunities.
