Just got on the road for the 6-hour drive back to Anchorage, Alaska, from 3-days of fishing with veterans of Project Healing Waters. I’ll be writing a full trip report shortly and put a video together, but in the meantime wanted to share a photo of one of the many grayling caught in this trip with our tenkara rods, lines and flies. Phenomenal.

    Congrats on the grayling, Daniel! I remember you saying last summer that you really wanted to get one. Well, hopefully not just one. Looking forward to the full report.

    Grayling are awesome, so beautiful. I will have to work hard to catch one using Kebari. I have caught them with a fly rod. Another odd thing I noticed about Grayling, they have a unique smell. Yours is ALASKA huge!!! Nice one Daniel.

    • Jay, was totally stoaked! Probably 100+ grayling, got my fill for a while.
      Adam, indeed they smell very different, a bit smelly, like some saltwater fish. Also, I found them to be super strong fish, they take the fly and fight very different from trout.

  3. Daniel, it was really good to have you visit and accompany us on the Project Healing Waters trip at Tangle Lakes. Thanks for the use of your gear, and the pictures. I look forward to your video. Hope you enjoyed your time in Alaska and brought home some great memories. Until the next time, Keith
