Alaska Trip Report - August, 2018

Last week I had the greatest time ever hosting a group of anglers, and fellow members of the #defectivegeneclub (including my dear wife Rikki) on a return trip to Tikchik Narrows Lodge in the Bristol Bay region of S.W. Alaska.

We had a great trip to say the least, but it’s difficult to convey in words just how great it was. Yes, we caught lots of fish and plenty of big ones too. But like all fishing trips, a journey to Tikchik and the Alaskan wilderness is about much more than just catching fish. It’s about the people you are with, the wild places you experience and see, the wildlife, and spectacular timeless beauty of it all. And of course… hopping around Alaska in a 1956 De Havilland Beaver float plane! This trip is truly one of life’s great adventures.
