We spent a few days with Kyle Kolodiejski of Kenai Riverside Lodge in their backyard, on the Upper Kenai. The Kenai River is arguably the most popular sport fishing destination in Alaska, but we saw an uncrowded river that felt more like the quiet homewaters so many Alaskan's enjoy. Kyle explains the lure that brought him to Alaska and the incredible Kenai Peninsula in Episode 2 - Dream Drift.
Magnetic North tells the story of the draw of Alaska, told through the voices of guides and anglers who live and work there. For anyone who has spent time in the Last Frontier, you know that there is an intangible connection to the land, wildlife, water, and culture. Magnetic North focuses beyond the incredible fishing by presenting the human attraction and intrinsic connection to this truly wild place.
The 5-part web series showcases the variety of landscape, fisheries, and adventure in Alaska. Four distinct locations are featured including a float trip in remote Southwest Alaska, a fly out adventure in Bristol Bay, a trip down the Upper Kenai River, and an incredible heli-fish experience in the Tordrillo Mountains.
