Alaska Fishing Testimonials

“A True Highlight In My Life”

Having completed four trips with Mark and planning my fifth, I can honestly say that Fishing with Mark Glassmaker is a true highlight in my life.

Mark is by far the best fisherman I have ever known and his boats and tackle are the best available on the market.

His facilities on the Kenai are world-class, and being able to step out the back of the cabin and enjoy the best fishing in the world is something that I dream about and look forward to every summer.

I cannot wait to get back up there. Hope you get to do the same.

“Trip of a Lifetime!”

I can’t imagine a better fishing trip anywhere in the world. This is absolutely a bucket list trip.

Mark is an excellent fisherman and guide. He and his wonderful family made sure we had the best trip possible.

Their place is right on the Kenai river and such a special place to spend a vacation. And then once you have your fill of fishing Mark can tell you all about the fun things to do in the area.

We had such a great time and will definitely be back again.
