I will be in ac in the middle of july. i have booked a couple days of fly fishing. i have been told that the guides will have everything i need. ie. rods, flies ect. what i cant find out is if this is at an extra charge or if the price of the guide covers the equipment also. if anyone can shed some light it would be appreciated.

The flyfishing guides do have access to flyrods...but using someone elses rod is like using someone else's wife. I'd bring my rod and reel if I were you, just in case. Eight weight is good for the Bonies, ten weight or so for Permit or smaller Tarpon. Good Luck!!


Gone fishing!!

I have seen some where they would be better off not using their own. Especially when the weight issue is factored in. Fly rods, of course. laugh

Remember, there is that saying about boats, planes and now fly rods, " it is cheaper to rent them than own them". Of course if you have one of the older models and do not want to rent one of the newer, sleeker ones, you can do wonders with silicone. smile
