Fish Talk | August 2019 Newsletter

Hi Everyone: 

Summer’s almost over! I can’t believe it! I hope that you’ve had your fly rod well-bent a lot of the time.There’s still time for the best of the best — Silvers! I’m dusting off my 8-wt and gathering up the big flies to be all ready. I hope you are too.

The Sockeye salmon have been absolutely unbelievable this year and everybody’s been taking home huge numbers of them. They are still arriving in some locations!

If you missed the Alaska Fly Fishers annual picnic in Mirror Lake this week you missed a lot of fun. The evening was absolutely perfect, (breezes & no bugs) and beautiful, calm, water. Super dogs, burgers, & brats on the grill, and lots of other food (like yummy brownies) to finish it all. We were joined by a group of people from Hawaii who even tried their hand on a fly rod and a float tube. Put the date on your calendar for next year!
