Rainbow Rhapsody - Part 1

They are called rainbows for only one reason, and in this first part of Rainbow Rhapsody angler Rich Jorgensen and filmmaker Joe Daniel travel to what surely must be Mecca for rainbow trout - the famed rivers of Alaska's Bristol Bay watershed. It's early season so the smolt run is still on and the guys throw streamers to big bows on the Copper River and American Creek. Rich also finds some righteous dry fly action for trophy-size grayling on the Kijak. It's all about messin' around in boats and planes, and being pampered by five star comfort at Rainbow River Lodge. Did we say Mecca? Maybe we meant Nirvana.

Since you got this far …

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through Patreon or Ko-fi. Both offer PayPal payments.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
