Anglers travel from all over the world to get a shot at this.
Alaska is one of the ultimate destinations in the world for most fly fishermen. From the salmon and trout species that flood this state's waters, opportunities are literally endless. However, one fish in particular may be sought after more than others, and that's the coho salmon. Just check out this video that shows off everything great about chucking meat for salmon. It's all you'd want from the strike, the fight and the land.
Those little silver bullets sure do put up a ton of fight. When you can get them on streamers, they might be some of the most fun fish you can chase in the water.
Fly fishing Alaska can be done affordably if you budget and make a plan. Just deciding on a whim to take a 10-day trip can be somewhat costly, though. Pay attention to the dates and seasons. If you can time it right, there's no better place to fish.
