We spent 10 days in Alaska with an agenda packed full of adventure, but staying and fishing at Northwoods Lodge was the highlight. You can only get to the fishing resort by float plane, boat or snow machine (in the winter) and that in itself is awesome. Think about that...everything at the lodge (including the dog, Yentna) had to get... More

Eric & Shan were fantastic and generous hosts. My trip to Northwoods was booked last minute and all via email, but couldn't have been better organised.
