Alaskan Leopard Trout
Chris Sandford is once again exploring Alaska’s Kanektok River in this episode of Just Fishing, where some special species of Trout and Grayling are known to thrive. Chris is joined by friend of the show Peter Cockwill, who knows the Kanektok well thanks to his guide Kirk. After walking through some of the unique Alaskan mouse flies he likes to use, captain Kirk moves the crew upstream to where these Leopard Trout live. A more colourful and spottier variant of Rainbow Trout, Leopards are also more aggressive, as Chris soon discovers. Next up, Peter gets a chance to fish light tackle for his favourite fish, the beautiful Arctic Grayling. As if it couldn’t get any better, the day ends when a rare and beautiful Arctic Char takes the fly.
