If you find yourself in Ketchikan, Alaska, good job. Even if it’s just for 8 hours during an Alaskan cruise, if you consider yourself a fisherman, you need to stop by The Hook Up. Though the building might be a little sterile-looking (a cruise ship came in a little rowdy so the buildings had to be rebuilt) this place is authentic Alaska. It is run by people that fish, not people that sell. In typical Alaskan fashion, the shop isn’t big, but filled with everything you need and nothing just for show.
