Enjoy this year’s Editors’ Choice Awards.
The best outdoor gear for fishing in Alaska!
Bigger and better than ever before, Fish Alaska’s Editors’ Choice Awards are back with a bang, highlighting the best outdoor gear, apparel and related angling accouterments that our fishing staff found indispensable during a range of adventures in the field.
From trolling for saltwater coho to slinging feathers and fur for trophy rainbows in the tundra rivers of Southwest, our field-testers have pushed every angling boundary in the Last Frontier in the past year, putting gear through the paces in just about every scenario imaginable.
We’ve been on backpacking excursions around Alaska, float trips in Southcentral, and fishing trips at remote destination lodges; we have motored into the salt, rowed roadside rivers, set up both elaborate and basic base camps, and dropped float tubes into the lakes around the state.
Amongst it all, a number of products stood out as better bets to help get the job done in comfort and style, and it’s all listed here. Whether young or old, experienced or just beginning, we’ve got the the gear you need. Check it out and then get going on your fishing dreams.
