Member since January 2017 Cooper Landing, United States
Background
David Lisi of Cooper Landing Fishing Guide, LLC located in the small mountain town of Cooper Landing, Alaska where he is a year-round resident, guide, carpenter and Trout bum. On any given day, you will most likely find Dave on the banks of the Kenai swinging for Trout with his best friend and girlfriend, Jackie. Dave spent most days of his youth wading the waters of upstate New York fishing for Smallmouth Bass, Muskie, Pike and Walleye. His journey to Alaska was sparked by a chance fishing trip on the Salmon River in New York with Mike Harpe, a legendary guide on the Kenai River. After the fishing day was done, Mike invited Dave to Alaska to fish the mighty Kenai River. At that time, Dave thought fishing Alaska was a pipe dream and didn’t arrive in Alaska until several years later to take Mike up on his offer. Once in Alaska, Dave fell in love with the Kenai’s mystical waters and the amazing fishing opportunities. He began his guiding career almost immediately.
