Fly Tying

Recommended Posts

Well i just got back friday night after fishing the naknek river for 6 days. For those who don't know the naknek river is located in bristol bay and along with the kvichichiak is considered alaska's best place to catch a bow over 30 inches. I never caught one over 30 but i did catch 4 around 27 to 29 inches and all were fat and full of piss and vinegar so they fought like possessed fish. My dad caught the biggest fish of the trip, a 34 inch 13 to 14 pound hog. Most of our fish were caught wading from shore but the big one and a few others were caught from drifting in our or our guides jet boat. Because of all the big fish we caught, the countless 18 to 24 inch bows and the chance to spend worry free days with my dad i would say it was a very successfull trip.

This is the big one my dad caught, it fought so hard and long it was really tired so we had to release it quick which explains the crappy pic but no pic is worth hurting or killing such a magnificant fish!

This fish was around 29 inches and 9.5 to 10 pounds, this fish had some serious thickness to his back

WOW...Looks like fly fishing paradise to me... One of these day's I'll go to Alaska but I'm afraid I'll never come back, seriously.

 

Nice pictures, the fish look super fat and healthy and you and your Dad look real happy, good stuff...
