    Default Fairbanks Fly shop?

    Hi Guys,
    I'm traveling from Chicago to Prudhoe Bay, leaving next Friday. I've picked up a handful of fly's from the local Cabela's but would like some local experience if possible.

    I think I'm set for Grayling but would like to do something more for salmon.

    Yes, the Fairbanks Fly Shop is located on University Ave in Fairbanks, the guys down there are very nice and would be more than happy to rig you up for Salmon Fishing. I don't think there will be much action up towards the North Slope for salmon though, but definently good grayling fishing, you can always ask them at the fly shop.

    Nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught.

    Default Third Plug for Howie Alaska Fly Shop

    Howie has more than likely forgot more about fly fishing than most of us know.

    Can't go wrong heading in that direction.

    :-)

    Thanks everyone for the input. I have a set of tires shipping to Fairbanks that'll make it easy to get over to University Ave.

    From what I've been reading I'm not expecting salmon on the north slope. But since a very young angler I've read about Grayling and figure I've got to give em a try. Coming back down to do salmon and trout fishing, maybe even pike.

    I'll be riding a dual sport motorcycle, so gravel/dirt roads are much more doable.

    I'm bringing 4 and 7 wt rods/reels with WFF lines and a handful of split shot.

    We had a send off picnic yesterday with a few friends and families. We're really looking forward to this.

    I'm going up the Haul Road in the last part of July. Any help would be very helpful.
