So, we're going to Chitina to hit the dipnet fishery in a few days. First time I've done this, and I'm a little concerned about the gear. We're going to do the charter with Hem's, and he's got most of the gear covered on his list, but I've seen folks with climbing harnesses and ropes and whatnot tied off to cliffs...is that what we're going to be doing? Or does he have other places a little "safer" where he can drop you?
Basically, I don't want to over-pack, but I need to know if I should bring climbing harnesses, ropes, and such. Any help from others who've done this would be appreciated. Anything you didn't bring that you wish you did? Stuff you brought that you realized you really didn't need?
