Over time I have fished all over Alaska, the Washington coast & BC. I am 83 years old & not quite as spry as in the past. This past year I did quite well catching coho. We caught our limits & released at least as many more! The scenery is beautiful & wildlife (whales, seals, eagles & otters) interesting. The food is great & the service outstanding. Anything one wants is provided on request.
