For good reason, Alaska remains the dream of anglers from around the world. The wilderness and quality of the fishing are unmatched. In this video, Rainbow King Lodge owner Rodger Glaspey and friends show you their special part of the world from their home base on Lake Iliamna.

“I’ve always had the bug to want to fish in those far-reaching places,” says Glaspey. “Of all the places I’ve been able to fish, Northern Hemisphere, Southern Hemisphere, the place I decided I really wanted to return to on a regular basis was Alaska. … To me, one of the great things about Rainbow King is you have the ability to race out and touch the wilderness … those secret and sacred places all fishermen dream about.”

Look for a story in the spring issue of Anglers Journal on fishing the waters around Lake Iliamna from this legacy lodge. For more information, go to
