No better way to get out and photograph some of Mother Nature’s finest work than to hop in a raft and go!

Meet Your Fishing Guide - Austin Ziletti

Born and bred on the James River in Virginia, Austin was introduced to the outdoors at an early age by both his dad and grandfather. Early memories bring back vivid images riding on his dad’s shoulders in the woods getting smacked in the face by every branch imaginable.  He feels blessed to have grown up in a place so naturally diverse.  In present day, he still has his all-consuming obsession with the outdoors and it makes him happy to share it with others.
 It was a natural progression that he would become a river guide after his first trip to Montana with his family, he was star struck by it all.  Austin explains, “The excitement I see in someone’s face who just got to experience a bit of “my world” is what keeps me coming back behind the oars”.   He soon began guiding on his home river for smallmouth and in the Appalachian Mountains for trout.  Austin spent time in the Northwest guiding for Emerald Water Anglers in Seattle, WA and a short stint in Bristol Bay, AK.  He was forced to return home to Richmond and wait out the long recovery from an extensive leg injury after a whitewater accident on Clear Creek in Colorado. Once he got the okay from the doctors he was back at it with a new-found love for whitewater paddling and spent the season working on the James as a raft guide and kayaking in the West Virginia whitewater.
Drifters Lodge is lucky to have Austin and his love for the outdoors, because “it is infectious” and through his easy-going nature he will work to ensure the experience you came to Alaska to find, will be delivered.

Meet Your Fishing Guide: Shawn Coe

Shawn was born and raised in Bedford, Virginia. He grew up fishing for bass and crappie with his father in Virginia whenever possible. Shawn joined the Army and during his second tour in Afghanistan he was injured by a suicide bomber. Rehabilitation ensued and he was medically separated from the Army in July, 2014. While going through rehabilitation, he joined the Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. program at the Martinez Clinic. Shawn quickly took to fly fishing and soon was fishing as much as he possibly could at local rivers and lakes in Northern California. With the Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing program he has received national awards for his fly fishing abilities. He loves to fish for steelhead and salmon all along the west coast on rivers like the lower Sacramento, Rogue, and the American. His desire has taken him to the North, fishing for smallmouth bass in Michigan and to the South, to the Caribbean catching bonefish. His current adventure has brought him just a little farther north ……Alaska.

Drifters Lodge is privileged to have Shawn as one of our enthusiastic fly fishing guides. We are proud to know that Shawn has helped defend our values as Americans and we will be forever grateful to him for that.  We are also proud to support Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing program and grateful that we were introduced to Shawn.  His passion for fly fishing makes Shawn an awesome addition to our team here at Drifters and we know you will enjoy his enthusiasm while on the water with him.

Some of us went hiking today, some went rafting. Some of us worked and some fished. All in all, a beautiful day, under a beautiful sky in a wonderful country. Happy Birthday America. Let freedom Ring!
#loveisintheair here @drifterslodge !! Chad and Stephanie came from Afognak Island to visit. Chad wanted to wait to get to the lodge to get down on one knee...of course, she said yes! We are so happy for them and have to agree that he couldn’t have picked a prettier spot

Meet Our New Rafting Guide - Julia Macdonald

Julia hails from the snowy land of New Hampshire.  She discovered her love of guiding after college, while leading camping trips for G Adventures though the spectacular National Parks of the Lower 48 states. She later worked in operations and sustainability with G Adventures in their San Francisco office, in alignment with her passion for environmentalism. She is an avid camper, hiker and nature enthusiast. Her strong sense of adventure has always kept her wanting to spend a season in Alaska, so she is thrilled to be a part of the Drifters Lodge staff in 2018.
