My name is Daniel R. Hardy, I am the owner/operator of D-Ray
Personal Guide Service. I am a born and raised Alaskan, and I have been fly-fishing since I was a young kid. My passion is guiding and teaching novice or experienced fly-fishers, how to catch Trout and Salmon in Alaska.

I live in Anchorage, with access to fisheries both north and south, and as a former employee of the Department of Fish and Game, I'm always up-to-date on the current affairs of our fisheries here in the state. Not to mention, knowing where the hot or not so hot fishing is. I am a registerd fishing guide with the State of Alaska, with permits to fish, the Seward Ranger District, State Parks, Kenai National Wildlife Refuge and the Mat-Su Borough. I have also written articles for the fishing publication (Fish Alaska Magazine). My guiding season starts with winter Steelhead ( January, February, and March ).

In April, I start fishing for Rainbow Trout, Grayling and Dolly Varden. I continue to fish these species along with Salmon, throughout the summer, all the way into October....weather permitting. D-Ray Personal Guide Service offers guided fishing, using state of the art equipment, a custom designed 21-foot heated driftboat, and a 14-foot cataraft (for the smaller streams north of Anchorage), to float and access the best fishing, away from the crowds. I also provide walk-in fishing trips for trout and salmon.

For maximum comfort and fishing pleasure, there will be a limit of three anglers per fishing trip, when fishing the smaller streams north of Anchorage. This allows for one-on-one instructions for the novice or experienced angler. I have a catch and release policy for Rainbow and Steelhead trout, but will allow retention of legal limits of Salmon and Dolly Varden. The timing of
your trip to Alaska, will dictate the species we are able to target.
My number one priority is to provide excellent customer service, while sharing the history of the area we are fishing.

This is done in a non-stressful way ( I don't yell at my clients). So, if you only have the time and budget to spend one or two days fishing, spend it with D-Ray Personal Guide Service. I hope that by the end of the day, the friendships formed and the fish caught, will provide memories to last a lifetime!
