The trip initiated at least three firsts . . . my first time to the Talachulitna River, my first time flyfishing, and my first time fishing with Pudge Kleinkauf. All three are things I can’t wait to do again.

I had planned to stay a couple of extra days at Talstar Lodge with Pudge after the gals from AWAIC headed back to Anchorage (See Alaska Fishing News from the June 2003 issue of Fish Alaska). That evening Pudge and I sat on the deck at Talstar Lodge and talked while she tied flies for the next day of fishing. This content is available for subscribers only.
