Responsible catch and release ensures the future of Alaskan fly-fishing, so always do your part. Treat every fish with care and respect.

• Invest in a quick-release tool that helps fish avoid line tangles while your hands and flies stay dryer. When the action explodes, you’ll really appreciate this tool.

• You have to handle that fish to get your picture of a lifetime, so do it with landing gloves. They improve your grip and his recovery.

• That salmon’s fighting for his life. How do you safely get a powerful fish off the hook? Turn him upside down to disorient and calm him.
