“I’d like to bring my own flies, do you have any suggestions?” | You bet we do!

Talaheim Lodge has a wide assortment of spinning lures, flies, sinkers, and leader material for our guests use, however, having your own nippers, hemostats, and floatant is helpful.

For fly fisherman that wish to bring their own flies, please refer to our suggested fly patterns. All salmon hooks should be tied on #2 quality hooks. Streamer hooks for trout and char should be tied on #2 to #4 hooks. Smaller grayling surface flies can be tied on #10 or #12 hooks.

For trout and char, matching the hatch in Alaska usually means salmon fry, salmon eggs, or salmon flesh, however, patterns like floating bass poppers, bumble bees and other “state-side” patterns also work well at times.

We offer a variety of fly tying material should you wish to tie your own flies while at Talaheim Lodge.

For the spin fisherman, Talaheim offers all hardware necessary. Typical lures for salmon consist of #2-#4 spinners, or pixie spoons, all with the required single-hook. Although fly tying material is complimentary, Talaheim Lodge does charge for any lures lost.
