Pink / Humphey Salmon
Pink salmon are probably the least glamorous salmon you might pursue in Alaska, but sometimes that's all that is available. It's true that Pinks don't jump like Silvers or make your fly line hiss through the water with a blistering run the way a Sockeye Salmon might do, but, if you are in a river in Alaska catching wild salmon, how bad could things be?
Depending on where you are, there are days when you either fish for Pinks, or you put up your fly rod and do something else (maybe pan for gold?). I've panned for gold and found some with MacDara Bryan (pictured).
When it's a case of fishing for Pinks or not fishing at all, I believe most of us would rather fish. If you're going to put forth the effort you may as well use the most effective fly patterns and techniques to maximize your potential for success. ($19.95 for the tying instructions and fishing techniques, or you can order the seven personally tied flies and
fishing instructions for $24.95). Both packages include a list of recommended equipment to bring, tying instructions, pictures of the flies, and other helpful hints. Each additional set of seven flies is $17.95. Click here to order
