Fishing Alaska's Kenai Peninsula: A Complete Angler's Guide
by Dave Atcheson
Paperback from Countryman Pr
ISBN: 0881505501

The ultimate guidebook to fishing one of the world's most beautiful backcountry spots.

Fishing Alaska's Kenai Peninsula is not merely a reference guide. It showcases the uniqueness of Alaska while emphasizing the universal passions that make the sport of fishing so compelling. With stories and anecdotes to complement the detailed specifics on stream access, timing, tactics, and equipment, this fascinating book will appeal not only to those planning a visit but to all those who have a love of fishing and only dream of going.

Atcheson provides information on both fly fishing and conventional spin casting in both fresh and salt water. He covers every style of fishing--from jigging for giant halibut off the coast, to float tubing for grayling and monster rainbow trout on quiet mountain lakes, to pursuing all the species of salmon that run up the streams of the Kenai Peninsula to spawn. He supplies detailed information on the well known "combat zones" that are so renowned for their large salmon and trout that anglers line up shoulder to shoulder in their pursuit. In addition, there's hard-to-find information on those out-of-the-way, beautiful stretches of water where one can still enjoy the beauty and the blessed solitude of the Alaskan wilderness. 30 black and white photographs, 5 illustrations, 10 maps, index.

· The only book dedicated to fishing this region--one of the fishing world's most fantasized-about venues.
· Detailed information on stream access that allows an angler to fish Alaska without spending thousands of dollars on lodging and guided fishing.
· Specific information on the timing of the different runs of salmon and trout in each body of water.

    Red Summer: The Danger and Madness of Commercial Salmon Fishing in Alaska
    Red Summer: The Danger and Madness of Commercial Salmon Fishing in Alaska
    by Bill Carter
    Paperback from Schaffner Press, Inc.
    ISBN: 098243328X
    Painting a visceral portrait of the life of commercial fishermen in the remote Eskimo village of Egekik, Alaska, this intense memoir depicts the author's four summers spent with a crew of seasonal salmon netters. Distinguishing itself from a typical adventure, this recollection relates the unforgiving supervision of the experienced female crew-chief, who along with her rugged shipmates lives by the credo: do the work or leave. From an encounter with an overly-inquisitive grizzly bear and being swamped by a mother-ship in open waters to the customary run-ins with colorful locals, this record is certain to appeal to adventurers, nature lovers, and armchair travelers alike. In the tradition of Jon Krakauer, Peter Matthiessen, and Sebastien Junger, this is an honest and vivid story of what it means to leave so-called civilization behind for a life full of danger, excitement, untold beauty, and physically grueling work.
