Catchin’, Not Fishin’ at Pybus Point Lodge

By Kent Danjanovich Senior Editor Alaska is one of those places that once you have experienced it, you just can’t seem to get enough of it. Every area that you explore seems to offer a whole new adventure, be it interior, the western and eastern expansions, the inside passage or along its coast. Over the years here at Sportsman’s News, I have had the great pleasure to visit many great lodges. As you know, I am a little partial to the freshwater river systems in search of all five of the Pacific salmon species, but each year I put...

Here in the west, we are fortunate to have a great selection of all of the above. Now, even though we have some great opportunities in my home state of Utah, some of my favorite waters are located in our adjoining state of Wyoming.

Fly Fishing Roundup

By Kent Danjanovich Senior Editor Fly fishing is an art and just like many other works of art, not everyone looks at it the same way. Because of this fact, the ever-changing circle of fly fishing rods and reels always seems to have something new and improved to make your efforts come a little bit easier. The staff at Sportsman’s News spends hundreds of days a year searching for special waters all over the world. Now, not all of our efforts are from the fly fishing side of things, but if it can be done with a fly rod,...
