  • What are your top three?

    I recently read the review on "Fifty Places to Fish before You Die". So I'm trying to save 30 bucks and there is not enough time or cash to get to the 50 listed in the book. Anyone want to share your top three favorites?
    Mine Are:
    Kenia for Bows - dream trip for me and the 40 year wait was worth every minute.
    Yellowstone for Browns - Lower 48 version of combat fishing, salmon fly hatch
    Western Backcountry Cutthroats - backpacking trips are the bomb for me.

    Sorry I'm from Iowa and only get about 3 trips a year but always looking for the next one

      Places to fish before I die

      -Kamchatka Steelhead
      -Kola Pennisula Salmon
      -Belize Grand Slam
      I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

        Alaskan top three

        King Salmon Area
        Char and grayling outside of Kotz

        I have got to do the the Alaska fishing now just waiting on Russia.

        But there is so much great fishing up here at home it is hard to leave, when the leaves are on the trees. ONEDAY

            I would Say....

            Katchatka Steelhead
            Mongolia Taimen

            I know there is a top three limit, but I would also say Bristol Bay Rainbows/Char as an alternate.

            Nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught.

                  Wood Tikchik in south west Alaska
                  South Pacific (Northern Mariana Islands) in the salt.
                  South America peacock bass.
                  It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

                    Seychelle Islands
                    Bristol Bay Rainbows
                    Mongolia Taimen

                    fishing isn't about life or death... it's more important than that.

                      Do I have to limit it to three!!!!!!

                      Lac Beauchene Qeubec - Brook Trout, Small Mouth, Walleye, Pike, Lake Trout.

                      Patagonia / Chile - Sea run Brown Trout

                      Honduras & Island of Roatan Honduras - Large Mouth Bass lake Yojoa, Bones, Permit and Tarpon off the island

                      Ok so I have already fished two of three but I have to go again prior to passing on to the big water in the sky or in my case maybe a little something warmer according to some.

                          Patagonia/ Chile - Sea-run Browns

                          Is that four? Sorry, my degree is in English so I can't count:rolleyes:

                            Can I change my mind?

                            I will have to delay the trip to King Salmon until next year. I want to try for thr big black bass and peacock bass. This year!

                              great question...

                              I would say the Chuitna for Kings, and Diego Garica for bones (for 1 & 2).

                              Of course, I'll probably never get the chance to fish them again...does anyone know how the Chuitna has been fishing as of late?

                              I elect to keep #3 open, since I hope I haven't crossed the 2/3s mark of my life, quite yet.
