This is why you fish the Dean in June.
Alaska | The Bahamas | British Columbia | Chile
In today’s edition of ‘Just a Picture’, we bring you…’Angler and Bonefish’!
One special note: see the grizzly hackle legs hanging off that fly? If you’re tying flies for your trip to South Andros, you should add grizzly hackle legs or barred rubber legs to any given pattern. They work really good.
One of the coolest features about the amazing rainbow trout that we chase at Alaska West is their spotting. Patterns and coloration vary wildly, but it’s the massive number of spots that have earned these fish the ‘leopard rainbow’ nickname.
We’ll take it.
Come late August at Alaska West, the Dolly Varden (and/or Arctic Char – it’s confusing) in our rivers get their spawning colors. This time of year, we think they’re just about the prettiest fish around.
Late August is pretty fun – ‘clowned up’ dollies like the one above are a nice addition to the already stellar lineup of countless silvers and beautiful big rainbows. If you’d like for us to tell you all about it, drop us a line. If not, enjoy a cool photo or a really pretty fish!
Nice fish, Tyler.
Among other encounters, Tom got this real nice fish and a real nice picture to boot.
Nice fish, Tom!
We’re really grateful to Rick Covich – his sons Trevor and Tyler are two of the rock stars on our team at Alaska West.
Nice fish, Rick!
We’ve just entered the month of August, or what we like to call ‘PlanYour Winter Bonefishing Month’.
Yes, we think this is a great time to schedule your warm weather fun for the upcoming winter. As you may know by now, bonefishing at Andros South between October and February is pretty awesome for a few reasons.
But we digress. Since you’re right in the middle of planning your winter bonefishing, we figured we’d give you a little reminder of the revolutionary new rebooking policy that we announced a few months back.
Here are some valid reasons for rescheduling your trip to Andros South.
If uncertainty around weather or personal plans is keeping you from booking your time on the flats this winter, cast your worries aside and drop us a line!
