Youngest trainees...

We make sure our staff; the pilots, guides, housekeepers, chefs and kitchen crew are world class. We are very proud to say we have an exceptional staff year after year at ASL.

In some cases we start them in their wee-years, so when they are legal to work they are well groomed in how to take good care of our customers.

Here Sydney and Amber, in "training", demonstrate that at 10 years of age, they have the "right stuff" to be a future ASL employee. Although Sydney will need to work on her shirt-buttoning-skills ;).

Kings, Kings and more Kings

When a day fishing for Kings produces 50 fish in one day, that's not only fantastic fishing, but one-heckuva good workout!

ASL clients who had a stellar day on the Nush, not just fishing, but catching to their hearts content.

Stop and smell the flowers

With the incredibly beauty that surrounds us out here, sometimes it is nice to stop for a moment to take in what really makes this landscape so colorful.

There are so many riches out here it is not possible to capture them all. This shot was beautifully taken by ASL Pilot & Guide Brian Boe while fishing on the Nush for Kings.

A beautiful morning on the Kvichak River, taken from the view of our guest cabins. Let's go fishing!!

Still Working Hard...

Nellie Williams is clearly working hard this season opener showing us how to catch two 26" rainbows, one hen and one buck, in the same
"hardworking" day.

26" Lady Luck

While fighting mines and doing Spring research in Bristol Bay Nellie Williams with Trout Unlimited took a few moments to wet a line. Luckily she happens to be at Alaska Sportsman's Lodge on season opener to do so! Here she is doing her job with a 26" beauty.
