Canada weather is very similar to Alaska. It can be cold or warm almost any time in their short fishing season so packing can be difficult. The key is layering and weatherproofing. Bring microfiber fleece that provides insulation and warmth. And don't forget there are sometimes mosquitos so the Bugs Away product from Exofficio is really a good idea. All our lodges are fine with US Dollars for tipping and credit cards are accepted for your final bill.

FISHING GEAR FOR CANADA FISHING ADVENTURES

The freshwater oriented lodges in Canada are legendary. Some provide all the tackle you'll need, while others don't. Here is a list of some freshwater gear you may want to consider bringing along with you:

6-7-8-9 Weight Flyrod
Fly reel with 150 yards of 30# dacron backing and both a floating and sink-tip flyline.

Medium action spinning rod and reel with 150-200 yards of 12-16# monofilament fishing line.

The guides at our Canada lodges will have plenty of flies but sometimes it's good to have a few of your own.

BASIC FLY LIST
Black Egg Sucking Leech #4,#6
Purple Egg Sucking Leeches #4,#6
Assorted other Leeches
Olive/Blk Kryst Buggers #4
Asst. Streamers #4
