Virtual Trip - Upper Base Camp - Kanektok River with Dave Duncan and Sons - Alaska

I have a rainbow that found a log to wrap around. Isaak wasn't about to let this fish win. Though that looks like a net in Isaak's hand, it is actually a tree limb that my line and fish were wrapped around.

 


This is a nice fish that did NOT get away.

Since they do not use nets, a guide sure helps in landing these trout.

Another wonderful day and a different guide putting us on fish. Isaak went above and beyond the call of duty here. It's hard to tell from the photo, but the river was very swift at this point. I was only up to my knees and had a hard time holding my position. The trout had wrapped itself around a root wad and was not about to budge. Isaak spent several minutes working the line from around the tangle of branches. He got it loose and the fight continued downstream. It was a nice fish that was great not to lose. Way to go Isaak!

Every guide was different and they all had interesting stories and experiences to share. Having a different guide each day was a great opportunity to enjoy each unique personality. Their experience levels ranged from over 20 years, to just a few. It didn't make much difference as far as the fishing went, as they all were very competent and enthusiastic. Their dedication and love for the sport showed. You can't fake that.
