The latest from Catch Magazine features quintessential Alaskan dry fly fishing for rainbow trout on the famed Alaskan Brooks River and others within Katmai National Park.

Renown for its large brown bears, spawning sockeye and wild remote landscape, the Brooks River is a celebrity of Alaska. The opportunity to film here alongside feasting brown bears is one of Todd Moen’s dreams come true.

For this 21-minute production, Todd traveled with Royal Wolf Lodge manager Nate Morris as they explored the Brooks and American rivers in SW Alaska. In and out by floatplane from lakes to rivers, they dry fly fished the remote upper reaches of many untouched streams finding incredible insect hatches along the way only navigable by air.

A little different from most of his videos, this film includes some unique live narration, with Todd adding behind the scenes updates and in-action comments. He shares a bit of his own experience as he filmed this incredible Alaskan fishery.

Thanks to Nate Morris and the whole staff at Royal Wolf Lodge for making this possible. The excellent float plane navigation by Forrest Carpenter, Blake McIntosh and Danny Zito gave Todd, Nate and McKinley the opportunity to get in an create this video for Catch Magazine. Much gratitude for the generous support from R.L. Winston Fly Rods, Scientific Anglers and Skwala Fishing. For more information about the Brooks River, please check out Katmai National Park.
