September Days | Rainbow River Lodge, Alaska

From Fly Out TV

Katie and I got to spend one gorgeous September day with Rainbow River Lodge and their veteran guide Benjamin Todd. It was by far one of the best trout fishing days I've ever had. Rainbow River Lodge is a premiere fly out lodge located on Pike Lake adjacent to the Copper River in Alaska's Bristol Bay. Learn more about Rainbow River Lodge - Click Here

Alaska Char Wars | Arctic Char of the Iliamna River

from Fly Out TV

We had the opportunity to visit the folks at Iliamna River Lodge this past September. Despite inclement weather, we found fantastic fishing on their homewater - the Iliamna River. This fishery is well known for their trophy Arctic Char, and in 3 days of fishing, we found plenty of them. They also have a healthy population of resident Rainbow Trout and lake-run trout from Lake Iliamna. Iliamna River Lodge operates a fly out lodge operation from June to October.

Experiences over Stuff this Christmas

This short video was inspired by one of my favorite lines from Dr. Seuss's famous book "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" It reads as follows:

Waiting for the fish to bite or waiting for wind to fly a kite. Or waiting around for Friday night or waiting perhaps for their Uncle Jake or a pot to boil or a better break or a string of pearls or a pair of pants or a wig with curls or another chance. Everyone is just waiting. NO! That's not for you!

What are you waiting for? It's time to seize the day and chase those lifelong dreams. Alaska awaits!

Refuge - Short Film

Presented by Alpacka Raft

This past June, we had planned to do a packraft adventure film in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge with a couple friends from Whitefish, Montana. We were not sure what to expect, but like always, we wanted to make a film that was true to our experience.

Looking back, the Arctic sort of wrote the story all on its own. The exotic nature of 24-hour sun, no trees, swaths of ice, and a seemingly endless and ageless mountain landscape captured us for a full 2 weeks. It really seemed like we were on a different planet – eating when we were hungry, sleeping when we were tired, and playing at all hours of the day without any regard for the time. Most importantly, we were far, far away from the chaos of humanity that had been exacerbated by a crazy election year. It felt good to be on a different planet where talks of Hillary and Trump weren’t rattling our brains. Celebrities and cell phones had no grip on our reality. This planet was a sanctuary from all that. Our minds could go quiet, and our eyes were suddenly open to the most astonishing wild beauty that we have left. The dull sadness about life faded, and everything was bright again.

You don’t have to go to the Arctic to find refuge. Thankfully, we have wild and beautiful places in our backyard – and they belong to us as Americans through our public lands. Enjoy the film – comment, share, and remember that life is still beautiful.
