Hi guys:

I just wanted to share great story from one of my clients ( Landon Mayer) that I thought you would enjoy.

"Northeast of Kotzebue, Alaska, are numerous drainages entering the Bering Sea with tributaries similar in size to walk-and-wade Western rivers. These great watersheds hold char up to 15 pounds and include the Wulik, Kivalina, and Noatak rivers. Their tributaries, including the Kelly River, Wrench Creek, and many others, also host runs of char. The area containing fishable water is vast.

There were four anglers on our trip. We spent approximately $2,200 per angler and landed about 15 to 25 char daily. The largest was 36 inches long and weighed 23 pounds."

We saw caribou and grizzlies during our stay. When camping in the Alaska backcountry, be mindful of your surroundings and take the proper food stowage and camp cleaning precautions to ensure a safe return home.

Cool story. It would be an adventure of a lifetime.
