Duffel Bags Fishing Gear

We suggest that your bring 2 water-resistant duffel bags:  One for your clothing and one for your sleeping bag.  

The size of the duffel bag that will pack best on the pack animals will measure approximately 2 ft. long by 1 ft. tall by 16 in. wide when filled with gear.  

One clothing duffel bag, 20 pounds maximum, per person, please. When packing, remember that our Wyoming summer weather can vary from hot and sunny to cold and wet.

Please pack accordingly.

We can furnish you with some gear, but   if you are planning on doing some serious fishing, we
do recommend that you bring your own equipment.  Whether you are planning on using spin casting equipment or a fly rod, make sure your rod will break down to a maximum length of 4 ft.  Also, pack your rod in a durable rod case or tube. 

Some recommended lures:  Small Panther Martins, Dare Devils & Mepps.  Recommended flies:  Small mosquito, adams, grasshopper, royal coachman & nymphs. 

There are some excellent fly shops in Cody, where you can purchase flies, lures, equipment and licenses when you arrive.

SOME FINAL NOTES:

  • When packing, it is important to include the necessary clothing and equipment to ensure a safe, enjoyable pack trip.  It is equally important to avoid taking a lot of extra, unnecessary gear so we can travel as light as possible.
  • We do have sleeping bags & pads available if you do not want to bring your own, although most people do prefer to bring their own.
  • Be prepared to have a great time, see some breathtaking scenery and experience this exciting adventure into the greater Yellowstone region of northwest Wyoming.
