Tackle and Technique

We suggest bringing double handed rods. In case you want to learn to Speycast or improve your technique guides are also keen instructors. Fly rods in 8 and/or 9 wt. Skagit lines with assortment of tips for the different types of water. Also fast sinking shooting heads for deep pools. Flies in black, blue, fuchsia, red, etc make great contrast with this blue water that mainly comes from Lake Anita which is surrounded by glaciers. Regular King salmon patterns do the job just fine! Assorted sizes. i.e. Intruders, articulated leeches, etc.

Technique: Fish slow while working your way downstream along the pools; it is very important to repeat the same pool more than once to make sure the kings are disturbed and they would get more aggressive. Guides will provide you of all the information you might need. Flies, fly lines, leader and tackle available at our fly shop at the lodge.
