    I wonder if 20 years from now this thread'll get dug up again and never miss a beat. The Internet trips me out sometimes man.

    11 years seems like a long time. It's weird to think about someone reading this stuff far in the future, or that a record of my internet time-wasting is still going to exist.

    As far as Alaska, I would recommend picking up a copy of The Highway Angler: http://www.amazon.com/The-Highway-Angler-Fishing-Edition/dp/1578333660

    It has been a few years since I lived up there, so I don't know how built up the area has become. On the Kenai though don't overlook the Russian River drainage and the upper lakes, and toward Denali and the Park there was good fishing on Troublesome Creek back in the day. Chum, Silvers, Reds and plenty of native trout and grayling. My best producing patterns were all streamers, particularly the bi- and tri-colored "coho" synthetic fur or fishair flies. Good luck.
