Alaska weather is legendary for being impossible to predict. I've had 70 degree sun filled days in April, and 30 degree snowy days in July. So the key to clothing is LAYERING and WEATHERPROOFING. Patagonia and Exofficio and Simms all make awesome Alaska clothing that will keep moisture and wind out and your body heat in when it's cold, but can easily be removed when it's warmer.

Fly reel with 150 yards of 30# dacron backing and both a floating and sink-tip flyline.

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