So I am sitting here in Iraq cruising the web looking at fly fishing gear. My wife even sent me some fly fishing magazines. It is never too early to plan for my next fly fishing adventure, that just so happens to be about 10 months away. I want to catch an Alaskan salmon on a fly rod before I PCS down to the lower 48. Cohos on the clearwater will be the trip for me. So I am looking for a fly combo to catch these salmon. However I am due to depart Alaska sometime in the spring of the following year. Destination unknown. So I am thinking, do I need to get a saltwater combo just incase I end up in a coastal area? Can I use a saltwater combo just as effectively in freshwater, or do they differ enough to warrant me into buying a regular freshwater combo and if I end up on the coast get another combo(to my wife's dismay)? Since I am in Iraq how do I know what to get without physically touching it so when I get off the plane, the next day(if wife says yes) I can hit the clearwater and rip some lips? Thanks.
