Smolko's Alaska Day Off Dispatch

Alaskan guides.  Day off.  Glass stick.  Chugging mice for hungry rainbows.  Sounds pretty good right now.

Guide, photographer and all around adventurer John Smolko sent a follow up from last summer's T.F.M. dispatch and it looks like the good times are continuing  at Tikchik Narrows Lodge.

John wrote...  "I hope this finds you well and you are having a great summer.  Thought I'd send along a few photos from up North as I just finished eight weeks on the upper Nushagak River guiding for rainbows again this season.  It's been a cold and wet season up here but the fishing has been stellar.  The other guide at camp with me, Mark Ross, is a fellow glass geek and on Saturdays we go throw mouse patterns all day.  Mark's big fish of the season is a 22" Rainbow we sight fished on a five weight Echo Small Water Glass fly rod."
