So everything is ready to go except one thing, Do i buy fishing gear here in the lower 48 and bring it, buy it up there and ship it back, or just rent it when we get there. last time i was upn there i bought a telescoping rod and reel for like 40 bucks but that was just a POS rod and reel to get me on some fish.
This trip is going to hopefully be 9 days of fishing and some sight seeing on the way. We are going to be traveling by car over 1200 miles in alaska and I want to get a solid pole for my wife, (i have reels) and I want to get waders, (if necessary), for her and me. Everything else that i think i need i have already or have purchased.
What would be best up there, Can I find a rod and reel to rent for my wife, (i am bringing fly fishing rods for me), or should I spend the $100.00 on a traveling one down here that i dont really need.
On the waders, are they necessary for July fishing? (worth the money just for a week) or can i just wade in shorts and wading shoes? If I can rent this equipment, wheres the best place to rent it? I will be fyling in to Anchorage.
Thanks for the info
