Of all the places in the World to fish Alaska is the perfect place to use tube flies. no longer does anyone have to load themselves down to carry box after box of flies. A few baggies of your favorite patterns in your pocket plus a small container for your hooks and you're all set. break a hook, put another one on. Want to change hook size, no problem. What you'll find like most of my customers have is that you'll be using fewer flies for your trips thus saving money in the long run.

A word or two about moose, in Alaska moose are best left alone, they're not cute beasts but cranky, unpredictable and at times (most times) are very aggressive. Last year a friend from Soldotna was in her small boat on Johnson Lake when a cow moose  swam out to get at her, not funny since she only had oars to get away and the moose was a better swimmer than she was a rower. No wonder game officials would rather tangle with a bear than a moose.
