    Re: Planing an Alaska float trip on the kanektok River

    Im booked for last two weeks in Aug/earlySept.

    It's time to tie.

    Help me fill some bugger barns for this trip.

    I have a bunch of articulated streamers I duped some people into tying for me about to arrive in the mail, what else am I gonna need for this trip?

    Thanks in advance

    Sun,

    Cant wait to see pics!

    When we were there, ALL you need is white, brown, white/brown (rust) colored flesh flies. THATS IT. And they fucking HAMMERED them. Leave the fancy shit at home.

    You should have an absolute blast!

    Best,
    Chris

    Re: Planing an Alaska float trip on the kanektok River

    Flesh flies as Brachy & Simms already mentioned, leeches, beads and glo-bugs for dollies and also for the bows. I haven't fished it yet (also a trip I would like to do one of these years) but I don't believe the Kanektok gets a lot of sockeyes, more so chums, silvers, and kings so larger bead sizes in 8-10mm will be better to match their eggs. Definitely bring some mouse patterns to catch rainbows on top. Small dries for grayling. For silvers, usually bright colored flies in pink and chartreuse, there are times when darker colors in black and purple will work better though. Not that the pattern is critical but this fly works very well on silvers, I would tie some in chartreuse/green, pink/purple, and black/purple. Contrasting colors are key in pacific salmon flies, and the rubber legs really seem to piss off the fish as well. Be sure to bring some pink wogs to catch silvers on top too. Alaskaflyfishinggoods.com has a lot of good info, some really good bead assortments based on the region you are fishing, and any type of fly you could possibly imagine for fishing there.
