Film: Do-It-Yourself Wilderness Fly Fishing in Alaska in “DIYAK”

DIYAK-Do it yourself adventure float in the Alaskan Wilderness from Mikey Wier on Vimeo.

Alaska is no doubt one of the ultimate fly fishing destinations, and a do-it-yourself wilderness trip to Alaska is maybe as good as it gets in the Final Frontier. In a new film coming from Mike Wier and Burl Productions, anglers explore these waters on on their own.

From Mike Wier:

“I knew the fishing in Alaska would be good, but I didn’t know it would be this good! For me, it was just as much about the adventure as it was the fishing though. When a couple buddies asked if I wanted to join a 100 mile wilderness float in a remote corner of Alaska, I didn’t hesitate. There’s not much that beats floating down a river with your good buddies, camping where ever you want and fishing all day. It’s not an easy trip though. A lot goes into planning and pulling off an adventure of this magnitude. We had to pack all our own food and gear. We moved 4500lbs worth of gear and camp almost everyday. A trip like this is also not without some risk. Flying in those small planes can be sketchy. Once you get dropped off you’re in bear and moose territory. There’s a lot that can and does go wrong. It’s about being prepared and ready to overcome challenges. But for us, the reward out weighed the risk. The mouse bite was epic and the fishing from top to bottom was all-time. -Mikey Wier”
