Alaska Bush Flying

Fly Out TV

"My first bush flight in Alaska gave spark to what would become a passion for flying and remote adventures only accessible by aircraft. To me, the grandeur of Alaska, the thrill of flying and the unique wilderness access is a combination that has no match on Planet Earth. Over 10 years later, we've built a successful business around the "fly out" experience. Enjoy this reel of some of our flying adventures throughout Alaska."

Unchanged | King Salmon Film

from Bristol Bay Lodge

In this modern day, it is truly inspiring to fish and adventure in places that literally have not changed in the past 50-100 years. The salmon runs remain strong, there's been no added fishing pressure, and absolutely no human development. That's what most of us long for. Bristol Bay Lodge is lucky enough to operate two such remote camps as a part of their fly out fishing program in Southwest Alaska. And. . . . this is one of the last best places to target King Salmon on the fly rod.

ARTIFISHAL | A Salmon Film

From Patagonia

The road to extinction is paved with good intentions.

Artifishal is a film about people, rivers, and the fight for the future of wild fish and the environment that supports them. It explores wild salmon’s slide toward extinction, threats posed by fish hatcheries and fish farms, and our continued loss of faith in nature.

Protect Wild Fish

Tell decision makers to stop wasting money on failed plans and invest in science-based solutions to save endangered wild salmon and orcas: Stop hatcheries, reduce harvest and remove dams.

100 Miles | Alaska Fly Fishing Film

Official Selection of the Fly Fishing Film Tour

Fly fishing and adventure go together like pizza and beer. By nature, an adventure is not defined by some pre-canned success story. Adventure is defined by an unknown outcome. And, as it turns out, the Alaska wilderness is a perfect canvas for genuine adventure and the unexpected. In the words of one of Alaska’s great explorers and bush pilots Paul Claus, “Everything here is bigger, larger, harder and tougher than it looks. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you’ve done, or how great shape you are in, if you come here, you’ll contend with the Alaskan factor.” For this group of anglers, that’s exactly what the doctor ordered. 

The goal of this expedition was simple – to use packrafts as a tool to explore and fish an extremely remote and braided river system, much of which is not accessible with larger rafts. The simple and no frills nature of packrafting offers the ultimate in flexibility and mobility. In climbing, they call it going alpine style – lightweight, fast, efficient. For an angler, this means accessing countless small channels and mouse-eating trout without the worry of dead ends, portages, and extra baggage. 

This trip was not a first descent on an unnamed river. It was not some epic of mankind’s quest through the uncharted. But, after going 100 river miles without seeing another human soul, it felt like it. To revel in the unknown is the greatest thrill for an angler. And when it’s all over, the fishing, the adventure, and the solitude all culminate into a shared experience with the company you keep.
