Angling for a Whopper of a Good Time in Beautiful SE Alaska
– For two unforgettable days on our adventure to Alaska, we experienced our “trip maker” — salmon fishing with Captain Allen and Tanja. Being from Montana, we have fished all manner of beautiful rivers and lakes and caught (and released) more than our share of fish. But watching our 9 year old land a large silver salmon was pure joy. Capt. Allen and Tanja are an incredible team, wonderful guides, and excellent with children. They kept the stoke level up the entire time. Not that we needed it. We caught many salmon, rarely going longer than a half an hour without a strike. More than once we had a “doubled header,” two of our lines striking at the same time. Which was so much fun! Here are other important details that made for a great trip: they have a new, spotless and comfortable boat. They easily accommodated our trip expectations and my pregnancy nausea concerns. Capt. Allen tied his own flies “to match the hatch.” We did not have a 16 year old deck hand helping us while the captain sat at the helm — a common occurrence. Instead, Capt. Allen and Tanja were hands on the entire time! Definitely book with these guys, and if you have kids, bring them!!!
