World traveler George Elgee will present a slide show on his trip to Indonesia for Giant Trevally.  He will also present on last year's Sheefish trip in the Kotzebue area. This is a different trip from last year's presentation.

Tuesday Tying Nights

I was picking up some fly tying materials at Brad's shop and noticed this on their board. Seems like a wonderful opportunity.  Both Brad and Mike are outstanding fly tyers!  

Tuesday Tying Nights @ The Alaska Flyfishing Goods Shop

Join us every Tuesday through March from 5:30-7:30 PM.

Each Tuesday we will feature a different fly or technique. You can join in or tie whatever you like. Vises and tools are available to borrow or bring your own. A fun and relaxing atmosphere is the goal and you do not need to be a pro to join in.

It is a great way to beat the winter blues, meet some fellow anglers and start dreaming about spring fishing. Fly tying nights only go through the end of March, so don't wait!

First Meeting of the New Year

Our next and first meeting of the winter will be on February 11 at the Thunder Mountain HS starting at 7 PM.

Brad Elfers has agreed to do a presentation on the trip he made to the Haines Area with his staff for November fishing. Judging from the pictures they had a great time and caught a bunch of very nice fish when we were iced out in Juneau.

Mary Ann and I returned recently from the east coast and are off for Maui and Christmas Island. Will be back mid-January and hopefully can get the club on a good track. How is work, life,etc. Can you still stand the Juneau weather?

New Auke Creek Weir Counts

It has been a busy week at Auke Creek.  Over 10,000 smolts have emigrated in the last seven days (4,002 coho and 6,907 sockeye).  Dolly Varden counts also remain very high, with 4,246 fish in the last week alone.  The total Dolly migration this year to date (7,699 fish) is already the fourth highest in the modern weir era and the largest yearly count since 1997.  Daily counts can be accessed by hitting the "Auke Creek Weir Counts" link near the top of the page.
