df-admin WINTER FISHING POSTS Leave a Comment

Rainbow trout fishing the Kenai river is always something I look forward too, even on day 100 I still find the motivation to get gear together and make my way to the river.  It is always helpful to see the river when the water is very low.  At Cooper Landing the Flow was around 600 CFS and below Skilak lake …

Pre Tied Leaders

df-admin DRIFTING ON THE FLY, FLY TYING FOR ALASKA FISHERIES Leave a Comment

Pre tied leaders are a must for the serious fisherman.  Having them on hand will keep you in the strike zone longer than if you have to tie them on the river.  I recommend a pips box for holding my tippets  that I tie in the winter each year.
