You Should Bring
We suggest that you bring your own rain gear, however we do have rubber loaner jackets. Layers like sweaters or jackets, extra socks, a hat with a brim and a water bottle are also suggested. Sunglasses, we recommend polarized, are helpful even on cloudy days.
Our trips are designed for folks in good health and physical condition. All participants must be able to walk or stand for three to four hours at a time. Clients of all ages over 12 (15 years old for six hour trips) are welcome whether they are experienced fly fisherman looking to check Arctic Grayling off their species list or beginners looking to step off the road system for a few hours and learn the art of fly fishing in some of the most beautiful terrain in our state.
You must be able to walk up to a mile over uneven terrain and wade in shallow streams as part of these trips.
All fly fishing on our trips is catch and release using guide made flies with barbless hooks.
