Hey guys! I thought that I'd stop by and introduce myself. I'm Josh. I'm moving to Anchorage from Wyoming in a couple of weeks on May 1. I've lived most of my life in Wyoming, and I started fly fishing shortly after I learned to walk. I'm definitely looking forward to fishing Alaska this summer. I'm hoping to find some small creeks throughout the Anchorage area that I can fish most days after work. I'm also hoping to find some lesser known salmon streams on the weekend. Here's for hoping!
The worst part about moving to Alaska is that I have to buy a new fly rod. You can probably tell that I'm really torn up about it. I'm currently deciding whether to buy an 8-weight or a 9-weight rod. I think that I've decided on the 8-weight. I really like the TFO TiCrx line, so I think that I'll go with that.
Anyway, I just wanted to come introduce myself. Having never fished for salmon, I'm sure that I'll be on here looking for tips on what flies to use, where to go, and your favorite salmon recipe.
