Trout & Salmon fishing the Kenai Peninsula with a pole!

So I had to try my new 21ft and 18ft carbon fiber poles...as in no reel.  I posted one video last year with my son catching grayling but I ended up shattering that rod.  Argh.  But I replaced them recently and took them out trout fishing on the Kenai Peninsula this weekend.

These poles are a blast!  Light enough to have fun with 8 inch trout but strong enough to land two silvers!  Great for the kids as they got the hang of it immediately since there was no reel.  Great fun for the adults!  Landing the silvers was a test of patience and wearing the fish down a little bit.  Not necessarily ideal for catch and release but we were using size 8 single egg hooks and we were targeting trout.

I typically don't post the names of smaller streams I fish with limited space but anyone who has been there should know where this is at.

Oh forgot my 6wt echo fly rod and lamson reel there.  I know it's probably easier if I stated where but either the folks there when we left have it or they don't.  $200 dollar reward for return!  It's ok, totally a blunder on my part because I was too pre-occupied with the kids, but it just means I am going to upgrade rods!  Don't tell my fiancee!  If she finds out, the reward is only $100!!!  lol.


Here's a  video with mainly the still pictures but also a short video segment of landing one of the silvers on the 21ft pole.

Looks like a great day of fishing and it's great for the kids. So sorry to hear about your rod and reel though. Don't worry, I won't tell anyone.

Lol. Thanks! So far the reward is still $200! Lucky me! It was a blast! I can't wait to try these rods in a few other fisheries!

Love the 8th photo! Great fun outside (as in not in a house!)--the area does look familiar, though-

Great pics! I've been on a fishing trip at kenai with a friend to catch salmon. I caught at least 20, not bad for a beginner.
