This is my 2nd fishing trip here and I never got over the fact that Talaheim can deliver both unspoiled world renowned fishing and world class service at the same time. Mark and his staff see to all the details, ensuring any level of outdoorsman, while comforting any guest by his flying ability and expertise, and attention to the aircraft. One need not look any further for the total Alaskan experience. Don’t miss out!

It’s been 34 years since I’ve been back to see my friend–too long. Mark, you have been a success and should be proud. You have made many memories for many people and will have left your footprints for the future. Love you and thanks for everything.

I could never have imagined that a fishing trip even to Alaska could be as spectacular as this week has been at Talaheim Lodge. It will linger in my memory as one of the best experies of my life, and made my 50th birthday a very special one indeed. I caught upwards of 100 fish across 8 species. A first in my life. The hospitality, food, drink and especially the person and service was all first class. I hope to come back with friedns and family again in a few years Can’t wait!

We’ve been on several Alaska fishing trips and this is the best! The helicopters, guides, and cuisine– top mate! Not to mention the fabulous fishing–incomparable. Camaraderie and hospitality also the best. Can’t wait to bring our friends back with us. And Casper– special thanks for teaching me the double haul!

Everyone who likes fishing and loves eating should be blessed with a week at Talaheim Lodge. Mark and Dave flew us over beautiful country. Scott and Casper shows us where the fish were and taught me how to fly fishing and actually catch them. And Stephanie filled us with such spectacular food, by the time we left the lodge we couldn’t get our waders up to go fish any more. The week here was like being with friends we hadn’t seen in a long time. This was one fishing vacation we will remember and share for a long time. Thank you all.
