From the pen and friends of The Neil Creek Chronicles comes this new sweetheart of a resource. Information for AK rookies and vets alike, this site serves it to you by fish, regions, and seasons. Just the way we like it.
Juneau, AK, April 14th, 2008 - Alaska Fly Fishing Goods (NASDAQ: GETURASSUPHERENOW)
Coming to Alaska, but not quite sure where to go or what to bring? Do you want to know when the best Rainbow trout fishing happens in Bristol Bay, and what they are biting on? Look no further...We are pleased to announce the launching of the Alaska Fly Fishing Goods website on Monday April 14th, 2008 at www.alaskaflyfishinggoods.com
The site is the brainchild of Brad Elfers, the longtime owner of Juneau Flyfishing Goods, a brick-and-mortar establishment in Juneau, AK. After 10 years in the biz, Brad figures that he has answered many thousands of questions from folks eager for information on fishing in Alaska, and this site is built around what he considers to be the three questions he hears most frequently:
1. When is the best time of year to come to Alaska to fish?
2. Where should I go to fish in Alaska?
3. What flies and gear should I bring to Alaska?
The site is organized around 3 main themes: Fish, Regions, and Seasons. In each category is information that should prove to be helpful to both the cheechako (newcomer) and sourdough (grizzled veteran) alike. In addition to the information, the site is the home of a full-service flyshop, with many products for fishing in Alaska that can be found nowhere else.
For the beginner or the expert, Alaska Fly Fishing Goods features 11 Rod/Reel/Line packages for all species, ability levels, and pocketbooks. Also available are 15 hand-picked and time-tested fly selections geared towards all the major species and fishing seasons in Alaska. In addition to the pre-filled flyboxes, Alaska Fly Fishing Goods stocks one of the largest selections of proven Alaska patterns in the world, as well as Alaska-tested rods, reels, lines, and clothing.
Although catering primarily to the angler visiting Alaska, anglers that pursue anadromous fish the world over can find something useful at the Alaska Fly Fishing Goods site. Many of the time-tested Alaska fly patterns are little known outside of the state, and some will translate quite well to other regions and fisheries. Bull trout anglers in British Columbia, diehard Steelheaders in Oregon, Austral anglers fishing for Patagonia's giant sea-run Brown Trout...all of them can find something new at Alaska Fly Fishing Goods.
Whether you are coming to our great state for your first visit and are new to fly-fishing, or a 30-year resident and a veteran angler, Alaska Fly Fishing Goods has everything that you need, all in one convenient location - www.alaskaflyfishinggoods.com
Dan Bacher outlines the steps you can take to help restore Central Valley salmon.
The demands of real jobs, new media opportunities, and a desire to fish more than write about it, has convinced the team team to pack it up and ride off into the Greater Yellowstone sunset.
