Experience the Last Frontier - Are you like I the type who can still lie awake at night dreaming about that supersonic rainbow and the one that got away?  If so and you have never been to Alaska, then this may be the year to treat yourself !  I was initially attracted to this lodge because Bruce Johnson, owner of Bristol Bay Sportfishing through 2006 with whom I have taken my previous 5 trips dating back to 1990, has been flying for the Branham's at Royal Wolf for the past 2 years and recommends them highly.  The more I have learned about the Branham's operation, the more convinced I have become that this trip will ranks among the best Alaska trips, and certainly among the prime rainbow destinations ever.

Target:  The main fishing pursuit here will be rainbows, and big ones at that.  From the lodge situated at the mouth of Nonvianik Lake, where the Nonvianik River begins its flow into the world famous Kvichak River which flows into Bristol Bay, we will fly out to the wide variety of rivers in this region.  If you want a chance to catch good-size, hard-fighting rainbow, enjoy beautiful scenery from the last frontier, and develop friendships with guides and group members, you will have a great time on this trip.

Lodge:  Royal Wolf Lodge is situated on a 120-acre retreat overlooking several small lakes.  It offers double occupancy cabins, each of which includes a full bath and its own picturesque view.  The comfortable main lodge provides you with a warm and friendly atmosphere.  At the end of a day we can enjoy the camaraderie of shared experiences, an open bar and a warm fire.  The lodge has its own Finnish sauna. 

Because of the short season, the guides and lodges are anxious to know our group size, which we will cap at 6 total unless we can secure a couple more spots.  We already have two committed and two others seriously interested, plus yours truly.  If you are interested and have not told me so, let's talk asap.  Please give me a call if you do have an interest and we can discuss additional details with you personally.

If you have a larger party and these dates do not suit, please let me know and I'll check with the lodge owners asap.  They have a lot of dates blocked out but some are negotiable.
