Gear
In order for Wadleigh Island Expeditions to provide the best Alaska Fishing Expedition experience, we use the best equipment available for our guests so they have the greatest chance to boat every fish that strikes. We have used many different brands over 20 years of fishing and have found that the best rod builder for salmon and halibut fishing to be Lamiglas. As for reels, we use the Shimano for halibut and for salmon we use the Okama.
