Gear That Get’s it Done

After more than twenty years and thousands of hours in the field, we have a pretty good nose for what works and what doesn’t. We have seen leaps and bounds in the tackle manufacturing industry with a wide range of innovative new products permeating almost every aspect of Alaska Fishing. From high performance fishing rods, fine-tuned reels, revolutionary new lines and cutting edge lures, bait and hooks, our guided customer is receiving far more than just a day on the water. We promise and deliver the most advanced angling equipment available. Below is a detailed list of what we consider the “tools of our trade.”

RODS AND REELS

Lamiglas

“The first and last choice in salmon and steelhead rods”.

 

Being a Lamiglas Pro Guide has allowed me to represent the premier Pacific Northwest rod manufacturer. With more than fifty years of experience designing rods specifically for salmon and steelhead, Lamiglas continues to be the most sought after and copied rod on the water today.

With a different rod for each individual technique we use, here’s a look at what you can expect from our staff…

Mark Glassmaker Sponsor

Day in and day out, our reels take an awful lot of abuse. From red hot salmon to every weather condition you can imagine, Alaska can make a decent reel look pretty cheep, pretty fast. This is why we exclusively use Shimano for all of our spinning and casting reels. We spare no expense in bringing you the most advanced salmon and steelhead reels Shimano has to offer. After all, for your next trip to Alaska, why would you expect anything less?
