Alaska Fall Fishing, Big Bow Bound!

Time To Head Back To AK Again For Some Big Bows, Salmon, Steelhead and Dolly's!

It's been a trip I've been waiting on all Summer for and it's it's finally here. The question that's been pondering me is, did I bring enough rods : 5wt, 6wt, 2 7wts, and an 8wt? Did I buy enough 0X, 1X and fly lines for the water we're fishing? Did I remember to buy my license and most importantly, place the dang thing within reach since I somehow misplaced it last time and you guessed hit with a ticket! Not letting that happen again while out on the Kenai.

We're fishing some small creeks, the mighty Kenai, maybe some inlet areas and who knows where else, can't complain really where we go I'm just letting my Pal from Anchorage show me to the promise land!

I think I should have enough flies this time as I made sure to bring a little of everything. Being a streamer guy and loving the big stuff I brought along a few too many fly boxes just in case. What about Eggs you ask? You better believe I got em and just about every color needed. As they say, the planning is half the fun, true but with my planning the danger always exist for me to enter the Troutdawg dungeon with no clue how to get around. With so much chaos ensuing from flies all over the place, different reels with varying lines, who knows what I have?? I guess it's better to have more than not enough as long as I don't accidentally use a 6wt 500 grain Teeny line hoping to use as floating line. Will definitely report to you when I get back, expect Mucho Pics!!

There will definitely not be a shortage of pictures seeing how I'm taking 2 digital camera's and about 5GB in storage space, no shortage there. Hopefully the big fish come out and play

I'd love to see what you catch up there! You should show off your catches at, you can even show exactly where you caught them on real maps.
