Last Guide for 2010 Season!

Well, I had all the guides set for this season and then wouldn't you know it we had a drop out. At least it was for a good reason. Captain Greg Wickline had taken a job running a supply boat to Haiti for the relief effort and decided he wanted to continue with his efforts, so he sent me an email that he was going to have to decline our offer for a job.

No Problem - I had 3 Captains on standby - one good seasoned veteran fisherman who accepted right away then called the very next day saying he just fell off of a ladder and was going to have to have shoulder surgery, so he was out for this year...No Problem - Call Number 2 on standby, he is excited, accepts the position, then sends an email the very next day saying he decided to accept a regular full time management job, better for his career!

No Problem - Contacted Number 3 and BINGO - So far so good, it has now been two days and he is still on board, even sent pictures so I think we have finally rounded out our 2010 Guide Staff.

So let me introduce Captain Greg Walters.

Greg was born in Sitka Alaska and has fished his entire life, even at a another Lodge in SE Alaska, so he comes with experience. He has also spent quite a few years on large Yachts all over the world.

I think all this mess has helped us through fate, get a really good member for our guide staff!

Only a couple months and the 2010 crew will be heading to Alaska and setting up for your visit, we look forward to a wonderful season.

Oh and for all you "Cookie Monsters" out there, heard the best news today we have a returning crew member from year before last - Janna - so we can look forward to some wonderful cookies to munch on while we are out fishing.

I am really happy to hear she will be joining us as part of the kitchen crew this year!

Can't wait to get fishing again!!

Captain Jim

  1. Alaska is definitely an amazing place for a honeymoon full of adventure.There are plenty of unspoiled natural wonders which capture the tourists attention and get them indulged in its wonderful scenic beauty as well..

    The contrasting landscapes of Alaska offer visitors an array of outdoor activities: trekking, mountain-biking, mountaineering, white-water rafting, canoeing, hydro-speeding, hang-gliding, paragliding, cart-sailing, windsurfing, sport fishing, relaxing in thermal spas, and driving 4WD vehicles through challenging terrain.
