January 10, 2017 – Alaska Fly Fishing Destinations

Speaker: Rus Schwausch

Rus Schwausch of EPIC Angling & Adventure will tell us about his two fishing destinations-of-a-lifetime located on the Alaska Peninsula – Alaska Wilderness SAFARI and Alaska Wilderness OUTPOST. Each experience will take you far away from paved roads and the typical structured Alaska fly fishing lodge setting… there are no fine paintings and no fancy carpet at these fishing camps.
Rus has been fishing, adventuring and guiding in Alaska since 1995. Little did he know that his first trip to Alaska back then, on a 100 mile unguided float trip with his buddies, would send his life in a completely new direction. He describes himself as “a former engineer, turned fishing guide, turned outfitter.” Plus, he’s a Wilderness First Responder and U.S. Coast Guard licensed.
