After moving to Alaska from Colorado 12 years ago, I have become progressively more involved in the fishing industry. For the past six years, that involvement has been as a halibut deckhand and guide on the Kenai and Kasilof Rivers.
For me guiding has been a blessing. Everyday fishing with clients I am reminded of how lucky I am to be out on the beautiful Alaskan waters, doing the things you love. I have fished with thousands of clients as they have made lasting, positive memories of their time in this beautiful state. While I love the thrill and excitement of the fight, it’s the fishing process that I love most. It’s the readying of the boat, meeting the clients, heading out to the grounds, the feeling of the oars on the perfect line or the feeling of the weight as it taps the bottom awaiting a bite. I love the all-encompassing nature of fishing; taking all my attention and focus towards a single task. I’m very excited to share my passion for fishing with you as one of the new owners of Discover Alaskan Adventures.
My partner Chris and I have been working very closely with Bob and Linda to ensure a smooth transition so that customers have the same WHY DO THEY BOOK WITH YOU? (Fun?, friendly? expertise?) experience that you have come to expect from Discover Alaskan Adventures. In addition to the saltwater trips, this year we will be offering full-day river trips on the Kenai and Kasilof Rivers.
I look forward to the opportunity to fish with you, your family and friends in 2016 and for many years to come.
