Have you toyed with the idea of wanting to go fish in Alaska but afraid that you’re not skilled enough? Perhaps, you want to include your significant other on your fishing adventure but don’t have the time to help them get prepared? Or does two handed fishing intrigue you but you don’t know where to start?
Join Heather Hodson, founder of United Women on the Fly for 7 nights/6 days fishing the “Chosen” Kanektok River on 7/19/20 – 7/26/20 at Alaska West. The iconic Kanektok River is well known and fabled for the opportunity to catch 5 species of Pacific Salmon as well as the ability to fish for resident Leopard Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden and Grayling. Be prepared for a week of fishing, education and fun!
Singles, couples, friends and families welcomed!
We’ve chosen these dates as the fishing can be insane! It’s a great time for all skills levels to challenge themselves and catch fish. Not only will you catch leopard rainbow trout, dolly varden and grayling; you also have a chance at the Salmon Grand Slam. 2020 is a pink salmon year and you have the chance catching all five species of Pacific salmon, all on flies, all on the same day. We use a variety of fly fishing techniques when we’re going for the Grand Slam, and that’s a big part of the fun – lots of techniques, lots of fish, lots of different water.
If you want to catch fish on a two handed rod, this is the week of fishing for you!
Everyday there will be optional education and fly tying after dinner in the Lounge Tent. Education will include different casting and fishing techniques specific to the Alaska Fishery. The afternoon we arrive, Heather will help anyone who wants their fly cast fine tuned. There can also be an on the water “Intro to Trout Spey” demo and practice.
WHY FISH with United Women on the Fly? These trips are so much more than a fishing adventure. Anglers of different ages, professions, backgrounds and fishing abilities come together to experience a trip of a lifetime. It’s a scary thing to step out of their comfort zone and join other anglers. The energy, laughter, smiles and friendships are like no other. We came as strangers and leave UNITED as friends.
