One Response to “Fish as Art”

  1. Alaska is by FAR the biggest state in the union, being bigegr than the next three largest states (California, Montana, and Texas) combined. It has more coastline than the continental United States. Needless to say, its world famous reputation comes from the fact that it abounds with thousands of miles of streams, more than 3,000 streams, and its lakes are counted in the tens of thousands. Added to that, saltwater angling opportunities unequaled almost anywhere in the world gives you an angler’s Heaven. Likewise, Alaska is blessed with an abundance of state licensed and U.S. Coast Guard inspected and approved fishing guides using the best of equipment. There are literally hundreds to choose from and picking just one can be a bit challenging. To make your selection considerably easier, I recommend you contact the Alaska State Department of Fish Game who should be able to provide you with a list of licensed guides in the area you wish to visit. They won’t make individual recommendations, but they should be able to provide a list of licensed fishing guides. My selection process would begin in the south-central area of Alaska for the greater selection of lake and river opportunities and the abundance of guides. Try the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce also to see if they have a listing of guide members in the area. There are a number of more than qualified guides listed in the yellow pages of the Wasilla/Palmer phone books as well. Good luck in your selection.

Monica is the winner of a new turkey hunting vest from Bass Pro Shops because she helped the TRCP spread the word about conservation. Monica has been a union member for 26 years and has been a hunter and angler for 12 years. Here is what she had to say about the TRCP:

“I am a union member who supports conservation of our land for personal use in hunting and fishing. If the TRCP was not out there fighting for us, where else could we go to do the things we love? Scouting allows me to enjoy shooting sports and fishing with my son, especially in the Chesapeake Bay area. The TRCP, in conjunction with my union, benefits me because I know they are watching out for my interests.”

Congratulations, Monica!

The precipitous drop in hunter participation should be a call to action for all sportsmen and women, because it will have a significant ripple effect on key conservation funding models.
