Tordrillo Mountain Lodge Partners with Korkers to Supply Guests with Adaptable Traction Footwear


From: Tordrillo Mountain Lodge

Tordrillo Mountain Lodge’s fishing guests will now be wearing the new award-winning Korkers Metalhead wading boot during Alaskan fishing adventures.

The Korkers Metalhead boot won the “Eco-Friendly” award at last year’s International Fly Tackle Dealer show. It is the only boot that offers adaptable traction for full coverage of the outsole for unparalleled traction, easily snapping into place with five traction outsole options.

“Anglers at Tordrillo Mountain Lodge will be encountering a variety of conditions while in Alaska. From helicopters, to AIRE rafts and motor boats to slick bottom wading conditions, Korkers offers a quick and easy interchangeable system to maximize traction on any surface,” says Mike Overcast, co-owner of Tordrillo Mountain Lodge.

“The Korkers system of adaptable traction allows anglers to use different soles for differing or changing terrain. It also allows anglers to care for their gear in a different way by efficiently cleaning and drying their boots while helping to stop the spread of invasive species.” says Brian Chaney, Director of Sales of Korkers.

Tordrillo Mountain Lodge is taking reservations for its summertime fishing adventures that vary by season, fish runs and client preference. Starting in June, clients can participate in the distinct fishing and skiing program called “Cast and Carve,” combining heli-supported corn snow skiing and king salmon fishing. After Cast and Carve wraps, guests can build custom fishing trips with or without the aid of air service to reach remote regions within the Tordrillos, embark on overnight rafting/fishing trips or fish out the front door of the lodge.
