Dates: September 17-19, 2020
Leader: Michael Souter mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
Number of anglers (including leader): 10
Description: This Rondy is a 3-day guided float fly-fishing adventure on the scenic and famous Kenai River in Alaska where we will fly-fish for big Alaska size Rainbow and Dolly Varden Trout. Guides will drift through miles of scenic water in custom built power drift boats where we will nymph flesh and egg patterns or swing flies for Trout and Dollies. Swinging opportunities will depend on water levels but bring your Spey rod if interested. Boots with felt soles are not allowed in Alaska and studs are not allowed in boats so rubber soles are required. There will be 2 anglers per boat/guide which is a real treat here (every other guide on the Kenai has 3-4 anglers per boat!). Guides will provide top-quality fly-fishing gear and flies but not Spey rods. Snacks, water and a hot lunch will also be provided each day.
We can meet and carpool from Anchorage airport to the Kenai River, which is about 100 miles south of Anchorage (2 hours) or just meet there depending on preference. Lodging options will be discussed in the future. Our guides will meet us each morning then shuttle to launch site for an exciting day of fishing.
As we get closer, we will have a meeting to discuss more details including equipment, lodging, car pools, accommodations, etc. In the meantime, you can get more details and check out the fish photos on the Silent Run website at http://silentrunak.com/
