by Michael Bales, Head Guide at Alaska Rainbow Lodge

I thought this day would never get here. It’s been a long winter and I couldn’t be happier than to be back in Alaska at the Alaska Rainbow Lodge. Day by day, my guides are coming in, from all points of the globe, filled with fishing stories covering the past nine months. But you want to know something interesting? To a man, their favorite place to guide and fish is right here, without exception.

For all of you who have been following my blog over the long winter, thanks for your support and interest. I hope I’ve provided some guidance, advice and inspiration for this amazing lifestyle, lodge, staff and environment. Right now, I need to help Ron Hayes with a few thousand last minute touches and get ready to take our guests fishing. So for a while, I’ll be signing off. There’s fish to catch and guests to help do it!

I can’t wait to see you here at the Alaska Rainbow Lodge!
