Laguna Verde was the lodge I stayed at... was very good, though we had incredible winds. Hard to fish in 100km winds.

I have gotten some incredible fishing on remote waters all over Alaska. I also guided on Kodiak for years.

Yes, it does get windy!

That is where a fast action rod helps.

This is a good video.

This is where I stayed, just a short walk from fishing!

Did you fish right in the river mouth?

You could if you wanted to.

There was a highway of fish waiting to go up the river. You could fish the left or the right side of them. So that you didn't fowl hook them. Or you could go up stream a bit and sight fish.

On the far right side, you could wade out a bit and fish parallel to the shore. One day, every cast was a hook up, OK, some times I had to make three casts to hook one. Amazing!!!

It was early and cold, the fish bit in streaks, but when they were biting, just WOW!

It was Halloween day that I caught the 24 pounder, great fight.

Richard [another guest] caught the most beautiful 20 pounder, what a gorgeous fish!

There was a summer run of adult fish but we never targeted them because there weren't enough to justify guiding and it was a busy time of year for gardening and preparation for the fall season which was our bread and butter. Though I have had customers catch big steelhead on flies, I've always been on the oars, not fishing.

Most of the flies I used guiding were flies my mom tied. She died in '92. I still have some of her flies.

I have many dreams but my "biggest" personal fly fishing dream is to catch my first big steelhead on a mom-tied "bug".
