Congratulations to Mario Barbara on his cracking mulloway caught from The Warmies, you are this weeks’ Catch of the Week.
Paul, Cristy and Jet Worsteling along with the IFISH crew have been over in Alaska and fished the Alagnak River at the ATA Lodge over the past week. An incredible trip where they landed king salmon to 35lb, massive chum salmon, pink salmon and sockeye salmon. All salmon were caught on fly in a variety of presentations on both fly and spin gear with 99% of the fish released, the rest came back to the lodge for some delicious meals. Keep an eye out on IFISH TV over the coming months as the footage is epic and even features fishing with Alaskan bears.
