ALASKA'S STREAMS OF DREAMS

By Douglas C. Myers

Travel, Action & adventure, Environment & nature | eBook


Author Doug Myers uniquely combines his varied background as author, artist, Alaska lodge owner, and sport fishing enthusiast. The book reflects his passion for Alaska's wilderness environment and its fishing opportunities. Doug is a long time friend and we have been able to cook up several adventures in the last frontier. One of the chapters is about our time together while fishing for herring in the Togiak Bay part of Bristol Bay and distant Security Cove. I also fished with Doug at his wilderness fishing lodge and especially appreciated his close relationships with Natives downriver. You will enjoy Doug's insights about Alaska's wildlife. Similar to his art his writings paint pictures of personal experiences with brown bear, caribou, moose, fox, and a variety of waterfowl and fish. His observations of salmon during the spawning ritual are fascinating. Alaska's Streams of Dreams will give you access to a very special and wild country. Whether you are an angler or some other kind of outdoor enthusiast I believe you will enjoy his personal stories. You will learn about sport fishing experiences that will more than wet your appetite for your own adventure, whether in Alaska or out your own back door. Dan F. Barr President, Bristol Bay Driftnetters Association

An Alaskan resident, Douglas C. (Doug) Myers, was raised in Oregon, where trout fishing on the McKenzie River in the Cascade Range was an indulgence revisited each spring. During academic pursuits in Southern California he remained committed to his fishing avocation. He learned the art of fly-casting on renown Hot Creek in the distant Sierra Nevada Range, and fished extensively clear-flowing trout streams throughout the Eastern High Sierras. His return to the Northwest supported professional objectives and provided fishing opportunities for resident and migrating salmon in waters of Puget Sound. He also fished the famed Skykomish and Stillaguamish Rivers for migrating steelhead trout. Myers later became joint owner of a rustic fishing lodge on a remote river bank in Southwest Alaska. It was an adventure opportunity of the heart that embraced wild Alaska's virgin landscape and Native friends at their historic village sites. These visits and others in areas of the Bering Sea, the Alaska Peninsula, and Kodiak Island offered cultural insights, fascinating sport-fishing experiences, and close encounters with Alaska’s renowned brown bear. Alaska’s Southcentral Susitna drainage and Kenai Peninsula regions also provided the author with pleasure to his arm as a sport fisherman and inspiration to his eye as photographer and artist.
