Ok, you guys are problely tired of my questions by now....But I figure you guys fish the Penn all the time and what better place to ask the questions. Let me surfice to say, this is my first major fly fishing trip, other then the 2 day getaway here at home. As a result, I would like to come fully prepared, hence all the questions.
I have covered all the basics I believe. I do have a few more though. Keep in mind we will be fishing a varity of rivers, and a wide range of fish. The Kings really are not our focus.
1. We plan to be in AK for 14 days, fly fishing each day. I have vetted out the rods, reels and line. How many lines should I bring for the 2 weeks? I understand needing a back up, but, many of the places that we will be, a gear shed most likely is not "just around the corner". I plan to bring 2 rods and 2 reels with one extra spool. Should I have a couple of extra flylines with me?
2. The next question is how many leaders should I have at hand? I really don't care to tie my own, I would just rather have pre-packaged tapored leaders with me. Again, how many and at what sizes should I have? I have plenty of tippit material from 4-15 lb test.
3. Last, my wading boots have a felt sole on them. Will I need a pair of Korkers as a safety issue? I also carry a wading staff. I understand that felt soles are going by the wayside due to enviormental issues. Should I replace the soles with something else? Is there restrictions in place regarding felt soles?
Thanks for everyone's assistance.
