    Default i fish the rivers mostly

    the only lake i have fished along the denali highway is tangle lake. just about any stream along that highway has grayling. brushkana river is my favorite, with seattle creek a close second.

    3 wt + tangle weight teaser + denali highway stream = nirvana
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    I believe that he means:

    3 weight fly rod

    tangle lakes teaser - fly

    pick a stream in the denali highway

    and you will be in heaven or your personal version of heaven.

    I use a 5 weight - any small fly

    It is the generation gap. My students often ask me something and I, in reply ask them to translate the request into English for me.

    OK, now what does a Tangle Weight Teaser look like. I havn't seen one at the couple of fly shops I have been to. Do you have a picture you can post, and where they can be gotten?
