Q: What do I have to bring? Do I have to buy some equipment to fish with you?
A: Swanny provides ALL the tackle & bait. Feel free to bring your own special rod & reel if you like. Swanny uses and recommends St. Croix Rods,
Best Rods On Earth™. See our links page and visit St.Croix's website for more information on this great equipment.
Q: How should I dress? Will it rain?
A: Raingear is always a good idea. In fact it's a
just in case item! See our links page for great info on Pacific Northwest clothing suppliers. Bring clothing that you can layer. It's cold in the AM, warming up later in the day. You'll want to shed those garments after you fight a fish or three...!
Q: What if I get thirsty, or hungry, what then?
A: A thermos comes in handy for coffee and such, as do small coolers for lunch and snacks.
Q: Where will I stay at night?
A: Swanny will point you to the best place to stay near where we will be fishing. Swanny has contacts at all the good spots!
Q: What kind of boat will I be on?
A: Swanny uses state of the art jet-sleds, but when he takes out the drift boats neoprenes are recommended!
