Or at a resort, or a hotel. Talon gets lumped into a category of a fishing lodge or an Alaskan lodge. It's wrong. Completely wrong. Your Idea of what five diamond service is will probably be shattered in the first 30 minutes.Yes, people come here to fish, as we did. You should come here to fish. They have a staff and fleet that are second to none in Alaska. They know where they are, and exactly what you need to do to catch them. But at the dock, the lodge, and the island you are treated to an experience that supersedes all fishing experiences you could possibly ever had. The owners Phil and Gwen have created an intertwined guest experience that weaves tradition and connection into a trip like nothing I've ever had. Did we catch fish? Yes. Did we fly into secluded rivers? Yes. The greatest food and dining experience in a remote lodge? Yes. But; their meals, pastry, and service would hold up to your favorite restaurant in the world. Anywhere. After a very blessed 25 years of traveling to fish every province of Canada, the Northwest Territories, Alaska, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and the Caribbean, I can say that I have stayed at one of the greatest fishing lodges in the Western Hemisphere. I sincerely hope you will go. We will be back.
