I have always dreamed of going fly fishing in Alaska. And it came true. It has even surpassed my expectation. Mr. Gary Shinnhuber, with his knowledge and patience have made it possible. A wonderful man. I will definitely go back.

This trip will simply ruin you for fishing anywhere else in the world! You will see & catch more salmon that you ever thought possible. And, Gary & Jordan are two of the most knowledgeable people you ever met walking in a river.
