OUTDOORS On the Fly Among sporting circles there are often many analogies. One analogy that quickly comes to my mind is prize fighting and Alaska sport fishing. On one end of the spectrum we have the heavy-weights, the heavy hitters that are much like our king salmon and our barn door size halibut. And on the other end of the boxing spectrum, we have flyweights where the action is highly spirited and usually fast and furious. During the month of July in Southeast Alaska our coastal rivers and creeks will be an angling arena for fast and furious action - not with robust thunderous king salmon, but instead with small, aggressive and highly spirited pink salmon.

The Fighting Gorbusha

Pink salmon are very aggressive and no other salmon species in our area will accept a fly as readily as pinks will.
