Each guest will be limited to one (1) army style duffel bag weighing not more than 30 pounds. This does not include your sleeping bag and pad. You should plan to dress for any kind of weather. It can quickly change here in Colorado. We suggest that you dress in layers that can easily be taken off and put back on as the weather changes. We recommend that you always keep emergency articles in your day pack just in case of an emergency. With the high altitude and the demanding country it is easy to wear down fast. Being in the best physical condition you can be in is important. If you are on any sort of medication, it is also important to remember. If you have any questions about anything on this list or otherwise please feel free to call.

Fly patterns include the following; dry flies 14 to 20 Humpys, Royal Wullfs, Renegade, Adams, Elk hair caddis, Nymphs sizes 14 to 20 weighted Gold ribbed hairs ear, Bead head prince, Stone flies, Pheasant tails.
