Alaska Sheefish on the Spey

Sheefish are very cool fish that love a swung fly. Most people have never even heard of them. Hard grabs big jumps and big fish. Hope you like this glimps into some of the fishing above the arctic circle.

Sweet! One of my favorite things to do. Been weathered out so far but still on my sights for this season year.

Nice fish handling BTW.

A beautiful so called Alaskan Tarpon. Very common is the mighty Kuskokwim watershed for example.

'Coney' here in the NWT. Swung/spey isn't really feasible over here as they don't run to clear fast flowing rivers, but they'll hammer striper style baitfish patterns in the Delta! I'd love to fish where you guys do. I've landed a couple over 50". I've seen them come from subsistence nets and weigh in over 50lbs, pushing 60". It would be CRAZY to hook that on a fly rig.
