There are countless reasons of why I love fly fishing. It allows you to meet amazing people, and go to amazing places to see Mother Nature do her finest work. It's a hobby that opens so many doors for those who are truly passionate about it. Just through posting fishing pictures on social media, I have made new connections to people who share my love of the sport. Some of these people I can meet with in person, and some live on the other side of the country. Some are now my closest friends who fish with me and share stories from their state.

Luckily for me, I get to exercise my passion for fly fishing in the great state of Alaska, which is home to thousands and thousands of rivers, creeks, lakes, mountain ranges, animal species, and fish species. You name it, Alaska has it.
