We again had the pleasure of taking family, friends, employees, customers, and vendors up to Alaska this year. Kodiak Island is known for its beauty and is called the Emerald Island. It’s also known for its big Silver Salmon. They are hard fighting sons of guns and just a hoot to bring them in. The town of Kodiak is a small town on the island. It has about 7,000 people and it reminds me of the 60’s or 70’s. We go for the genuine camaraderie, local cuisine, sightseeing (even bears), and just generally enjoy the fishing experience.
