The team at Fly Out has been so lucky to work with the Claus' family at Ultima Thule Lodge to tell their incredible story of wilderness, adventure, family, and the genuine Alaska experience. Today we are launching the teaser of a new web series - Beyond. The video series will explore the specialities and uniqueness of Ultima Thule Lodge, the flying culture, and the truly vast wilderness it's located in. It won't take you long to realize this is a truly special place that stands out as one of the world's great adventure lodges.

What defines us? We ask ourselves this everyday. As fly fisherman, we know what defines us, our passion for the sport. It's a selfish sport, and with occupations that all too often interfere with our obsession, it's a way for us to escape the real world. Transitions is a story of exactly this. We were all at different stages in our lives, and with changes in location and occupation, we set all obstacles aside to try and prolong the inevitable and just fish. We had no idea that mother nature's attempts to derail our itinerary would become so extreme. Through sheer persistence and an obsession with fly fishing that could, in some cases, be considered an illness, we became the choosers of our own destiny. 2012 would be the best summer of Alaskan fishing we had ever experienced, and now we've chosen to share it with you. Enjoy!
Bristol Bay, Alaska is host to one of the last great salmon fisheries on earth. It's our last chance to get it right the first time. We must protect this national treasure and its salmon fishery; incredible sport fishing and recreation; fishing jobs and economy; and a native way of life that's thousands of years old from the specter of the Pebble Mine, proposed as one of the largest open-pit mines on earth. Pebble will generate up to 10 billion tons of toxic mine waste that must be stored, treated and monitored "in perpetuity" in the heart of the watershed. EPA has the power to stop this dangerous project under the Clean Water Act and we need you to urge them to do so now.
Because this issue is so important to sport fishing jobs in Bristol Bay, Crystal Creek Lodge is offering a chance to win an incredible 4-day trip for two to fish Bristol Bay, Alaska. Win the fishing trip of a lifetime by using the Tell a Friend feature after you take action. When you urge a friend to comment, you'll be automatically entered for this amazing trip to an award-winning lodge on the Naknek River.
Filmed with Bristol Bay's Mission Lodge, Episode 3 showcases 3 guides working and playing in the Alaska bush. Justin, Zach, and Dan describe their connection to their job, the waters, and the incredible fish that they chase every season. Most folks who have worked or lived in AK can relate to their stories. Just like home, there always is "a draw that keeps bringing you back to this place". Episode 3 also features some incredible aerial landscape scenery, thanks to the pilots and crew at Mission Lodge.
