Fish Who’ve Never Seen a Fisherman

Sportsman’s Atlas

April 2004 – by Chris Shaffer

Kenji King couldn’t see the river, nor could he hear it when he pulled his mid-’90s model Suburban onto a small pullout on the narrow, unmaintained, pothole-clogged dirt road. King had traveled an hour in the 4-wheel-drive vehicle now painted with mud and scratched by overgrown trees. He hadn’t seen another car, bike or person, only bald eagles and deer.

Alaska’s Boardwalk Lodge – Steelheading in Comfort

By Shel Benjamin

Ambivalent would be the best way to describe my relationship with steelhead fishing. I love catching these strong acrobatic fish, but I always wonder if the discomfort I have to put up with is worth standing in frigid water and making a thousand casts. So when the WFF offered a steelhead trip to Alaska and after talking to the lodge owner who assured me that it was not like that at this destination, I thought I’d give it a try.
