Mr. Z goes to Alaska
Mr Z got into numbers of smaller fish as well as a few ultra fabulous silver salmon and was kind enough to share a few photos of the trip. He said getting the fish to hit was only part of the test. Landing a big angry fish hell bent on reaching the spawn grounds is something a photo can never describe. You have to taste the experience for yourself.
I am very fortunate to know anglers such as Mr. Z and others from the various paths that have been traveled. They are incredibly rich with knowledge and experience. These folks set the bar for my future fishing goals as well as help keep my shameless fish bragging in perspective. Words fail to describe my appreciation but will extend yet another thank you for sharing these photos and some tales from Alaska. “Thank you, Mr. Z!”
Silver salmon note: This species is an amazing fish that only exist within a handful of places in the world. Alaska sports some of the best fishing salmon in the world and some of these brutes can reach +50lbs. For more information about this species with some fly-fishing info mixed in, check out the link below. I picked this one because it had a full break down of the life cycle spawn, fry and back to spawn.
Good luck and Good Fishing
