 What you need to bring for your

 fly fishing trip

 

We supply almost everything you’ll need on your fly fishing trip. The following is a list of a few personal items that you’ll need to bring. Feel free to email us or call us if you have any questions.

 

1) Fishing license (if you need a fishing license, it can be ordered online at the Michigan DNR Site, and you can also purchase a license at local license sales location)

 

             

On Line license: www.mdnr-elicense.com/welcome.asp

 

2) Warm clothes (fleece and wool are ideal). Even the summer nights can get cool here in Michigan!

 

Examples:

 

Warm coat

Gloves for fishing in the cold         

Hat or ball cap

Rain gear

Waders

Wading boots – (wet wade or use to get in and out of boat)

Warm socks & extra socks

Long sleeve shirt

Cool shirt if fishing during warm periods

 

*** Optional ***

 

Although our trips provide most of the fishing equipment you will need, you’re welcome to bring extras or your own equipment - here are some ideas:

 

Polarized sunglasses (these will allow you to look into water that would otherwise be obscured by glare)

Camera (for recording that trophy catch)

Chap Stick

Sunscreen

Hand/foot warmers

Extra layers

Extra clothes for after the trip

Extra snacks/drinks (we’ll provide the meal, but you’re welcome to bring whatever you’d like)

Your own rod and reel (or you’re welcome to use ours)

Your own flies (or we can supply them for a charge)
