Beads and Egg Flies for Alaska

July 29, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

From now until September, anglers fly fishing in Alaska will focus on egg patterns, whether they be simple plastic beads or Glo-bugs, Iliamna Pinkies, and Babine Specials. “On the Kenai Peninsula, red salmon are now attracting big rainbows and Dolly Varden. In the Susitna Valley, kings are drawing trout, grayling and, in streams such as Clear Creek and the Talkeetna River, Dollies.” Ken Marsh in the Anchorage Daily News.
