Just a note to thank everyone there for the memorable 50th wedding anniversary trip we took to your lodge the last week of July -- we had a great time -- thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Please give specific thanks to Scott - Peter - Doc and Trapper Jim -- they were all superb guides who provided the personal attention and patience to make such an outing totally a blast -- we wish you all the best.

Thanks again for being such a terrific host to all of us the other week. Your staff, pilots, and guides were nothing but friendly, helpful, and gracious - they were always smiling and a joy to hang out with every day. All of us agree that the week was probably the best trip we've ever been on...and we've been to a lot of different places. You definitely run a first rate operation.

This is my 2nd fishing trip here and I never got over the fact that Talaheim can deliver both unspoiled world renowned fishing and world class service at the same time. Mark and his staff see to all the details, ensuring any level of outdoorsman, while comforting any guest by his flying ability and expertise, and attention to the aircraft. One need not look any further for the total Alaskan experience. Don’t miss out!

It’s been 34 years since I’ve been back to see my friend–too long. Mark, you have been a success and should be proud. You have made many memories for many people and will have left your footprints for the future. Love you and thanks for everything.

I could never have imagined that a fishing trip even to Alaska could be as spectacular as this week has been at Talaheim Lodge. It will linger in my memory as one of the best experiences of my life, and made my 50th birthday a very special one indeed. I caught upwards of 100 fish across 8 species. A first in my life. The hospitality, food, drink and especially the person and service was all first class. I hope to come back with friends and family again in a few years Can’t wait!

What a wonderful crew & a celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary! All cozy in the “honeymoon cabin” only a few steps from the finest food west of Anchorage. You’re all such super folks that took us into your family and worked your darndest to show us a great fishing vacation, and succeeded. Safe and exciting helicopter rides, picnic overlooking the glacier, and so many rainbows, char, chum, sockeyes, and graylings that we couldn’t even keep count. What a luxury to have ever fly tied on for us! Thank you for a super fabulous time.

It was an amazing 7 days at Talaheim Lodge. Mark you were incredibly generous with this trip. Little did I know what a special experience it would be. Your guides are the best (I may actually become a real fly fisher, thanks to them!) and the rest of the staff friendly, helpful and fun. The food and beer were superb. I’m nostalgic for Alaska already. See you again.
