Counting down the days now until my wife and I head up to Alaska on 26 June. We'll be spending three days sightseeing Anchorage before our drive down to Soldotna where we'll spend a week at the Gone Fishing Lodge. Our fishing schedule has us fishing with guides every morning to about noon or so. Then we'll have the rest of the day to ourselves to explore other surrounding rivers and creeks. We're bringing some fly rods up with us but will be renting spinning rod outfits from the lodge. Hey, fly rods are carry-ons (free) and long rod tubes are checked baggage at $20 each way. So, we're wondering if any AK members would be interested in meeting up with us some day we're in town and maybe show us around? Let me know.
