    Default King Salmon Rod

    I'm coming to AK. mid June to hunt blk bear in the Susitna area. I'll also be fishing. What size rod and reel do I want to use for kings (I guess I'll be in upper reaches). The outfitter said 20-30 # & test medium action rod. There is a WIDE selection of "medium" rods. If some one could give me a number of a brand name reel that's right I can match a rod to it. Since I'm flying it needs to be a two piece. Any lure selection hints would also be helpfull. I'll use ultra light for Dolly varden ,Grayling, and Catch & release Bows.
    I'll be fishing out of Whittier before the hunt but the charter will take care of me there.

    see my post in your other thread, a crankbait rod is what you want...
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.
