I will be riding a dual sport motorcycle, KLR650, from Chicago to Deadhorse starting June 13th. It'll take about a week to get to the AK border, a couple weeks within and back home during the fourth week. This will put me in AK for fishing in the last week of June and first week of July.
I'm planning on bringing two rods, both are break down, one light weight spinning rod and a fly rod. I'm currently looking at a 4wt to replace an aging 7 wt two piece that I have.
From my imagination, it seems I'll be able to ride along and pull over in many places to toss a line in the water. I've caught rainbows for a long time and hope to get in on some good trout fishing. Considering my tackle, I don't want to fish for monsters but pan size so I can do a little catch and release and keep one for dinner when I can.
I'd really like to get a chance at catching some graylings.
I'd appreciate any input on possible locations and fly patterns. I have a handful of Panther Martin's. For fly selection I have some black ants, mosquito's, and some wooly bugs to name a few.
