    That’s great! I’ve never fly fished in freshwater so I’ll be watching for your report. She’s doing really well up there.

    It sounds dumb but bring some crocs or sandals for the end of the day. If you are wearing rental waders and boots for your first time you are gonna wanna get comfy and air things out when you are done. And wear long sleeve shirts too. And bring some bottles of booze so you dont have to sit around the bonfire drinking a dozen cans of beer each night, unless you want too.

    If you are new to wading ask your guide for a wading staff. And bring a headlamp because the fishing gets red hot sometimes just after dark.

    Some really good polarized sunglasses. Patrice casting accuracy. Good luck Jason post up some photos of the trip. I'll be fishing June Lake again with Salmon Peach Power bait.

    Ben-Gay! You’ll work some muscles that don’t typically get much use.

    She seems to mostly guide the Missouri which is a large tailwater fishery. Casting accuracy and presentation is everything in fly fishing. You will catch nothing if you can’t cast and properly present your offering.

    Try and take a few casting lessons before you go. Learn the basics and your time on the river will be much more enjoyable and effective.

    Learning to cast is certainly helpful, but a good guide can get you to flop a line away from the boat pretty quickly. You'll most likely be fishing a 2-fly rig, so it's not about the beauty of the presentation. Just get the flies away from the boat and not tangled. The Mo is not a difficult fishery - you'll do fine. I would definitely bring some SPF shirts and a buff. Sitting in a driftboat all day is like being in a parabolic oven. I also like a wide-brimmed hat - to cover the ears. No use bringing waders to the Mo in July - I just wear water sandals and shorts.
    Have a ball!
