Our first experience fly fishing in Alaska. This was a very easy trip to set up- especially since it was last minute. They took care of our fishing licenses and transport up the river. Our guide Jared was most patient and very knowledgeable of the...More

While fish are never guaranteed, there are some things that a guide service should attend to. The equipment was old and had lots of use. The destination was one that many groups use due to ease of access so quite a few folks fishing on...More

Our travel agency, Alaska Tour and Travel booked these jokers. They will also get an earful. This operator is not a guided service. They have poorly maintained equipment, and they do not guide or give any instruction. There are better ways to spend your money....More
