INSPIRED BY ALASKA
Though his first love has always been sport fishing, for his first fifteen years in Alaska Dave Atcheson made his living in the commercial fishing industry, working in various capacities for Icicle Seafoods and as a crewman on various salmon and herring seiners, setnetting in Prince William Sound, and drifting on the Copper River Flats outside of Cordova. Those experiences, along with frequent trips into the backcountry via foot, canoe, and raft have bound him to this unique Alaskan landscape.
Dave Atcheson is an avid sport fisher and hunter and, along with Dead Reckoning, is the author of National Geographic’s Hidden Alaska: Bristol Bay and Beyond and the guidebook Fishing Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula. He has written for a variety of periodicals, from Outdoor Life to Boys’ Life, and is a frequent contributor to Alaska Magazine and past contributing editor for Fish Alaska Magazine.
