A Dream We Call Alaska

Nestled deep into the wilderness along the shores of one of the largest lakes in Alaska, lies a grouping of fly-fishing lodges that encapsulate what it truly means to be wild. Within those boundaries, endless quantities of Salmon, Rainbow trout, char, and other freshwater treasures move throughout the territories, creating an environment so wild, it feels like something that could only be found between the pages of a Jack London novel.

Last September, we had the chance to trade our wheels for wings and make our way to Pedro Bay, to spend a week at Iliamna River Lodge, as well as Rainbow River lodge, and Fish and Float Alaska. While there, we experienced the truest Lodging, Cuisine, and of course, Fly-fishing that Alaska had to offer. With days spent jet boating around the wildest terrain in the country, we had the chance to experience freshwater fishing unparallel to anywhere else in the world.

Feel free to take some time to check out the most recent release of our brand-new short film, “A Dream we Call Alaska”, shot in partnership with Iliamna River Lodge, Rainbow River Lodge, and Fish and Float Alaska.

Note, that while we attempted to culminate our unforgettable adventure, however, the only way to truly experience something of this scale is to do it yourself. To plan the Alaskan adventure of a lifetime, head over to www.iliamnariverlodge.com, Rainbowriverlodge.com, or fishandfloatalaska.com.
