If you’ve ever dreamed of tangling with the fierce power of the Alaskan king salmon, this is the book for you. Craig Boulden shares his ten years of experience as a professional Alaska king-fishing guide to give you a comprehensive and lethal battle plan for getting the jump on everyone else on the river.

Each chapter begins with first-hand accounts of duels with monster fish—brimming with the excitement of the chase, the exhilaration of the battle itself, the heart-stopping beauty of the Alaskan wilderness, the adrenaline rushes of encounters with bears, and the thrill of finally landing that fish-of-a-lifetime.

Then, revealing the treasured secrets known only to veteran guides, Boulden gives step-by-step instruction on ALL the deadliest king-catching techniques — backtrolling, boondoggin’, downtrolling, sideplaning — and even fly fishing. You’ll learn:

--how to read the river like a pro
--how to get in the king-catching “zone,” and stay there
--how to make quality drifts by mastering the art of boat control
--eleventh-hour fighting skills for seducing that monster into your net
--the guides’ tricks for modifying hooks and lures to catch more kings
--the best way to cure fish-attracting salmon eggs
--details on the tackle and gear used by the pros
--how to get the most out of your guide
--everything you need to know to fish for kings on your own

An authoritative reference guide for both novice and expert fishermen, “Fighting Alaska’s Wild Kings” also gives armchair anglers a taste of what it’s like to fight these awesome giants and to drink in the vast and untamed nature of America’s last frontier. Includes photos.
