Alaska Rainbows on the Kanektok - VIDEO

on Tuesday, 24 November 2015. Posted in Featured Video, Video

Commando Heads for Alaskan Rainbows from OPST

From the Filmmaker:

OPST (Olympic Peninsula Skagit Tactics) fished the Kanektok River in July of 2015. It's hard to imagine a better river for micro Skagit and Commando Heads than the Kanektok. With tiny side channels, woody banks, and deep, broad main channels, the river was perfect for showcasing the incredible versatility of Commando Heads. We streamer fished, mouse fished, and nymphed with some of the largest split shot possible for the incredibly gorgeous, and potentially huge, rainbows of this special river. Thanks to Alaska West for providing a great experience for us.

on Tuesday, 17 November 2015. Posted in Featured Video, Video

Short Film by Vital Films

There are only a handful of fly fishing films that have this quality cinematic look and feel. And, it appears there is a real story thread in this new film, "Patterns". It's interesting to see filmmakers from outside the fishing world taking a cut at a sport we all love. We're looking forward to this one! 

From the Filmmaker:

Vital Films presents Patterns, a short fly-fishing film.

We are excited to announce our first ever fly-fishing film with the official teaser! Patterns will be a unique look into the sport of fly-fishing and the art of mastering it. To understand is to perceive patterns.

Alaska Super Cub & Bush Flying Video

on Tuesday, 10 November 2015. Posted in Featured Video, Video

AK Suppercubbin Video by Zach Clanton

From the Filmmaker:

As a photographer, the content I ultimately seek and show is the end result of some grand adventure. Some elaborate scheme with many different stages of planning. But if it wasn't for all the air time I log in bush planes and my incredible friends/pilots who make it all possible, I would never discover these places that transform wild ambition into something tangible. Before I even think about packing my bags to set foot on snow, ice and rock, it is those moments of precious flow in the air that let the mountains reveal themselves. It is where all the great plans are born. In an effort to find something unique and untrodden, I have made this video to showcase those moments in between photographs and celebrate the airmen of Alaska. Pilots: Drake Olson, Ken Macdonald, Zack Knaebel, Doug Brewer and Don Lee.

The Super Salmon (Teaser) - Alaska's Susitna River & Proposed Mega Dam Project

on Friday, 06 November 2015. Posted in Featured Video, Video

Teaser By Ryan Peterson

Here we go again. Alaska's rivers, fish resource and ecosystem is pitted against another development project. This time, it's the mighty Susitna River, stretching 314 miles from the Susitna Glacier to the Knik Arm of the Cook Inlet. The Susitna is an important sport fishing river, with very healthy runs of King and Coho Salmon. 

Read more about this issue: Susitna River Coalition

From the Filmmaker: 

Alaska's Susitna River is one of the world's biggest and healthiest wild salmon watersheds. A controversial government plan aims to tap its hydroelectric potential via a $6b, 735' concrete dam. As part of studies done in advance of the project, scientists radio-tagged a king salmon that made an unexpected, unbelievable journey.

20 minute short film coming January, 2016.

Alagnak River Fishing - Alagnak Lodge, Alaska

on Monday, 02 November 2015. Posted in Featured Video, Video

Fish the Alagnak River in Bristol Bay, AK

Katie and I had the opportunity to fish 4 days with the Alagnak Lodge in Bristol Bay, AK this past summer. It was a full house with a corporate group returning for their 10th anniversary trip. Let's just say it was a wild time with great salmon fishing. We experienced mostly bluebird weather, and the Silver (Coho) Salmon run had just turned on in the tidewater near the lodge. Perfect time to capture the essence of the Alagnak Lodge. Check out the short video we produced during our 4 days last August.

Trip Review 2015

IMG 0991

Katie and I had the opportunity to visit the Royal Coachman Lodge this past June for a full week of fishing and filming. Royal Coachman Lodge is located on the Nuyukuk River inside the Wood-Tikchik State Park - our nation's largest state park. They are an intimately sized Alaska lodge, hosting 10-12 guests per week. They operate a fly out fishing program with two De Havilland beavers, accessing fisheries as far as 200 miles away.
