Now that the trip is over, the memories of fishing the beautiful Copper River begin. I want you to know that of all the places I've fished in Alaska, The Rainbow River Lodge is the highest quality experience. It was a real pleasure to fish with hosts who are dedicated to fly-fishing and know the stream well. And what a stream, Beautifully colored large rainbows in most pools. And a lodge that is everything you would expect an Alaskan lodge to be.

Everything about our stay at Rainbow River Lodge was memorable, but the hospitality we received from you and the staff served to tie together all the weeks adventures. As you know, I have fished in a lot of places in the world from Canada to New Zealand but I've never seen anything to equal the Rainbow trout of the Copper River... Their size, number and fighting ability in the crystal clear water make the Copper worthy to be called a trophy stream. I am sure that I will never land the equal of the 30-inch Rainbow that finally took my yellow stonefly nymph nor the many large trout we caught on dry flies during the caddis hatches.

I will not attempt to express my admiration for the fly fishing which you provide, as words cannot adequately express the quality of the exquisite Copper River and the quantity and quality of the superb Rainbow trout which inhabit it. Suffice to say that I do not expect to encounter such an experience elsewhere in my lifetime
