    new fly rods for reds

    I need to buy 7 or so fly rods for red salmon. I'm looking for something with a lifetime warranty that will hold up to inexperienced users and not have the broom stick feel of a 10wt ugly stick. Last year the company I guided for used Echo 10wts and I was not happy with them at all. I know...

    Jim creek water crossings

    I'm thinking about heading out to the Glacier later today so I'm wondering if someone could fill me on the current water crossing and ice conditions? I'm taking a friend with me who has never rode an ATV before so I don't want him to get in over his head:proud:. Thanks

    Show your home processing stations

    I just retired from the Army and bought my first house in Eagle River. Now that I'm not living in military housing or renting I want to set up my own little processing station in my garage. I prefer to everything myself vs turning in it all in. I already have a utility sink so the plumping is...

    Recommendations/Advice for first hunting pack

    I've used a cabelas pack for several years and it's served me well. Last year I bought an internal frame KUIU pack and it's a lot more comfortable but it doesn't have as much room as the cableas pack. I've wanted to upgrade to the Barney's pack but I haven't bit that bullet yet. Does anyone...

    customizing a 7mm-08

    I have a model seven 7mm-08. It's a little bit older gun with blued barrel and wood stock. I have thought about turning it into a light weight sheep gun. It's already short and very packable. What would it take to put it in a light weight synthetic stock or even putting a new barrel on it...

    I posted this on Fly Tying but it is a subject worth discusssing here

    Jackie and James Jackie and James When I first got to Alaska I decided that I really needed to learn how to fly fish. I went to the PX and bought a $35 5wt with reel, line and everything included. I watched a few videos and was finally able to catch a few extremely small stock trout in a...

    crazy ram hunt

    Our packs where over two miles away but thankfully Jed had a pocket knife. We took a few pictures and gutted him so he would cool down. Then we made the trip to get our packs and move camp back to the airstrip and then go back for the ram. Thankfully, the whole ordeal ended up putting the ram...
