At Angler’s Alibi Alaska, we specialize in salmon fishing on the fly. We utilize both single hand and spey rods daily in our quest to catch salmon on the fly. We do not exclude the use of conventional gear to catch salmon at all, and we feel that we specialize in this venue as well. We do focus a bit more on Alaska salmon fishing on the fly though. The king salmon are very difficult to target on the fly all day long, throwing heavy sink tip lines to get down to the depths that the kings prefer.
Catching Alaska salmon while fly fishing is something that has been done for generations in this great state. The pure act of intercepting these magnificent fish on there way up river from the salt is very addicting. Salmon fly fishing is similar in many ways to fishing for steelhead trout. The main difference is that there are many more salmon than there are steelhead trout. The other major difference is that the steelhead go back to the ocean, where the salmon end their life cycle after spawning.
