    I like hooking into a Kings on the river but...there's something about ripping silvers lips all dayon the open ocean that's hard to beat.

    Sight Fishing a flock of Kings in the Salt,surely is a good time.

    Tough to trump a Humpie though(grin).

    A good silver bite on the Anchor with light fly gear is hard to beat.

    Favorite fish is probably rainbows on the fly rod. We've got the longest history together. Behind that is whatever I can fish for with the fly rod.

    Never caught a king (but it's going to happen soon!). Silvers are definitely my favorite salmon to fish for so far.

    Saltwater: lingcod all the way. Come on July 1.

    I'm still so new to Alaska that it's all just awesome. I do miss walleye fishing from time to time.

    I really like Kings on light tackle... Probably prefer bobber fishing to most anything else...

    Good call. I haven't done much pike fishing, but two summers ago got into some great pike action on a fly rod near my brother's cabin on the Yetna. They were all small fish, but sight casting to those aggressive pike in the weed beds was a hoot!

    I love stream fishing with a fly rod and not seeing anyone else. Whether it's rainbows, salmon, or grayling.... if I'm alone or with a good buddy or two and nobody else, that's heaven. Needless to say it doesn't happen a whole lot anymore. Grayling are usually my fish of choice for my "get away from it all" trips.

    Sockeye, if they weighed 30 lbs. you would never land one !!!!!
    They spend so much time airborne they should be required to have a pilots licence !!!
