Ken Marsh will take you on a fly fishing adventure as only a native who has lived and fly fished his entire life in Alaska can. You won’t find a catered, cozy fly fishing camp with protective, professional guides in these stories. Instead, you’ll join Ken and his sometimes crazy, always interesting friends as they fly fish through the seasons in the real Alaska. Through it all, they’re on a search for solitude, for the untrammeled, and for a place where angler and fish can meet in one moment that can’t be taken back or forgotten. It’s the same search all flyfishers are on, but the scale is, like the state itself, much grander than most of the Lower Forty-eight.
Ken Marsh was the former outdoors editor, managing editor, and editor-in-chief of Alaska Magazine, where he also created the award-winning “Hindsight” column.
