Suggested Fishing Clothes

During early and late season mornings and evenings are quite cool, as to wear a jacket over a thick fleece pullover or polar. Ocassional rains may occur. So bringing a rain jacket will help our anglers in getting more comfortable.

In fact, we suggest you to bring:

  • Warm and cold weather clothing.
  • Polar fleece underwear (for use as first skin or underwader pants).
  • Rain or wading jacket (Goretex is desirable, also to be used as extra layer).
  • Comfortable walking or hiking shoes.
  • Sun and rain hat.

Others

  • Breathable waders (Goretex is desirable).
  • Strong wading boots.
  • Polarized glasses.
  • Strong sunscreen (we suggest 30-50x)
  • Personal medicine.
  • Video and picture camera.
  • Personal lantern.
