I forgot some things you asked. We booked 3 months in advance, but we fished an extra day and he wasn't booked. It probably depends on what season you go, but if you are locked in to a date, I'd try to book as far in advance as I could. We furnished our own equipment, but George gave us flies to use when ours weren't as effective. The fee was $200 a day for an 8 hour day, and is less, I think $150 for a half day. You bring a box lunch and a sandwich for the guide. He brings ice and bottled water. Ask him about equipment. I know he flyfishes himself, but I don't know if he rents equipment. Use flourocarbon leaders!
