My family will be visiting Alaska for the first time this summer, the week before July 4th. We all grew up in south Arkansas and at least the men have all been fishing and hunting since we were able to do so. I say that to set up my question: I'm looking for a flyfishing guide out of Anchorage that can get us 'out there'. We don't normally flyfish much down south, but we will frequently spend 3 hours getting to the best spots out in the boonies.
Most of what I can find on the net are all big charter boats, or very well polished excursions. They just seem to me to be more of an entertainment activity than the real deal. I don't mean any disrespect, I'm sure they are doing what there is a market for, but that's just not our interest.
We have two days open, so we can go either Monday or Tuesday, June 28th or 29th. Looking for a full day for 4-6 of us. We will have the exact number in another week or so. Pop is early 50s, so we can't go crazy on backpacking 8 miles to a spot, but this is his trip and he wants to be 'out in it' as he says.
I appreciate any recommendations, suggestions, tips, or anything else that will help me make this a trip of a lifetime for him.
