What to Bring
It is very important that you bring the necessary items to be comfortable on the trip and at the same time not haul around extra stuff you are not going to use. Space is limited and the aircraft we charter has weight restrictions. Please try to keep your luggage to a maximum of 55-60 pounds with no hard sided suitcases, wheelie style bags or bulky items.
weather is unpredictable. The best way to dress for Alaska weather is
to layer your clothing. Temperatures usually range from the 40-60's.
Capilene long underwear works well layered with fleece. The fleece jackets/vests
with wind-stopper fabric inside are great with the wind chill factor.
Don't forget a wool sweater, fishing gloves, stocking cap, a hat with
brim and a good quality rain jacket.
good chest wader is recommended. The breathable Gore-tex waders have
proven very comfortable on our trips. Hip boots with rain pants work
in the rafts, but restrict some wading opportunities. Most of the fishing
takes place while floating or anchored within the rafts although, we
do stop quite often to wade. Our campsites offer unlimited wade fishing.
Please be sure that your boots do not have metal studs or cleats, as
they are not compatible with rubber floors in the rafts.
sure to bring along your favorite libation for the evenings. Plastic
containers work well and are safer than glass bottles. Care should be
exercised to insure that caps do not leak and bottles are not damaged
during travel. Arrangements for having beer along can be made with us
so that it won't effect the weight restrictions in the aircraft.
