Waypoints Podcast: #12 ALEC GERBEC – Understanding and Explaining Tides for the Saltwater Angler

October 23, 2019

Alec Gerbec has guided for years in some of the world’s finest fresh and saltwater destinations. He spent eight years working in Bristol Bay, Alaska at Enchanted Lake Lodge and four years guiding in the Seychelles – one of the most tide-dependent fisheries in all of fly fishing. As Alphonse Island’s head guide for three straight seasons, Alex developed a deep understanding of tides and the effect they have on all flats (and even bluewater) species. In this episode of Waypoints, Jim and Alec talk about the “angling-related science” and terminology of tides, and how different moon phases, tidal flows, and water conditions can impact a saltwater fishery.
