Articles

Pudge Kleinkauf has been a Contributing Editor (and she will continue to be in the future) for Fish Alaska Magazine since its creation. Writing over thirty feature articles about her explorations and visitation to various fishing lodges and water-ways and almost as many about flies and other matters of the sport she also has created a dedicated following.

Knowing that, we thought our readers might enjoying resurrecting those articles they not have read in the past or want to peruse again. So, we’ve decided to start a blog containing them.  Below is the list of the Feature Articles and the date of the issue in which it appeared.

If you would like to read or re-read one or the other, please send us an e-mail pudgekleinkauf@gmail.com and give us the title and Issue the article is in and we’ll bring it forth for you and others to enjoy.  Read on!!
