Our Fishing Guide
Rick Collins grew up in Ketchikan and has been on the water since he can
remember. He's the son of a sea pilot who taught him a love of the Alaska
outdoors and how to safely enjoy Alaska's beautiful back country. Rick is a
licensed and insured fishing guide and has a 100-Ton Masters license. In the
off-season, Rick teaches biology and maritime studies at Ketchikan High school.
All fly-in fishing trips include a licensed guide, box lunch, snack, bottled water, raincoat, and fishing equipment (if needed). Fishing equipment includes a fly rod (or spin casting rod), flies (or spinners), Gore-Tex waders, and pick-up and drop-off at the Ketchikan Visitors
Information Center (the building behind our courtesy van) in front of our
"Liquid Sunshine Gauge" located on the cruise ship dock.
