Steelhead and Spines: Wild Fish and Big Lines in Alaska

In the spring of 2015, Neil and Ian Provost embarked on another pursuit for big lines and wild fish. Once again, it was north to Alaska, just as it was 3 years ago on their first trip to capture steelhead and spines. Since then, the burning desire to explore around the next bend, to see what’s on the other side of the mountain, has grown to an inextinguishable level.

The brothers found themselves back in a corner of southeast Alaska, where for a few months of the year, some of the steepest, fluted lines in the world can be ridden, while chrome steelhead run up and down the coastal rivers.

“This is the place for us to step outside the bubble of modern society, and into a world of our own making, where skiing and fishing and camping is everything. We returned home with these images, and memories of battling storms and mountains on the glacier and of an island where pure fish swim beneath the old growth hemlocks.”
