Alaska fly fishing guides
Virtual Trip - Lower Base Camp - Kanektok River with Dave Duncan and Sons - Alaska

After dinner, we walked down to the river to sample some Kanektok River fishing. On his first cast Mike was into a Pink salmon. In the hour we stayed to fish this evening, Mike caught three species of Salmon (Pink, Sockeye and Chum),several Arctic Char and two Leopard Rainbow Trout. It was hard to get Mike to leave, but I told him this was just a small sample of what this river has to offer - and we will be fishing at this camp for six more days.

"Remember this is a marathon, not a sprint", I told him. He reluctantly agreed to go back to the tent. We were in bed by 11:30 and there were still a few of our fellow fishermen out fishing.


After our first camp dinner, several guests went to the river to sample Alaska fly fishing. Here is Malcolm (from Scotland) with his first ever salmon. It was not a monster king, but one of numerous humpies in the river. It might as well have been a 40lb. King with the size of that smile. What a privilege it was to witness the event - especially with such a fine gentleman as Malcolm.

I brought 6 fly boxes full of flies - I didn't want to run out of flies and I wanted a good selection. This was my box of Teeny flies. They worked great - especially on the Sockeyes.

After dinner pretty much everyone was anxious to try a few casts. It was about 9:00 pm, but daylight was not an issue - as it stays light this time of year into the wee hours of the morning.

This is such a magical place, it is hard not to get caught up in the moment. In fact, if you don't get caught up - I would be surprised. It reminded me of the time I was at Disneyland as a child. I'm sure it is different for everyone, but it is truly magical.
