Alaska – The Last Frontier

Alaska is an amazing state, like no other place in the world. It’s a magnificent display of nature that is so immense and so powerful, that most people don’t comprehend its vast expanse unless they see it in person.

Some of the areas of fishing covered in our book include:

  • Southeast Alaska

Our guide contains detailed information about nearly every fishing area in Alaska, as well as over 17,000 job contact listings and companies that hire. Alaska is an exciting place to explore, live, work and earn big money!
