I'm going on a 10-day guided brown bear hunt in SW Alaska, during which my dad will be doing some fly-fishing on a decent-sized river. I have an excellent guide, but he's out hunting right now. So I was hoping someone could help me with a few questions about fly fishing. My dad is a very very good fly-fisher, but most of his experience is in the Rockies and Midwest. (I know next-to-nothing about fly-fishing).
Most importantly, what size/weight of tapered leader should my dad get?
He will be using a 7-lb/wt, fast action rod.
My guide says that we will be fishing for rainbow trout, dolly varden char, and grayling. He suggested the following flies:
Elk Hair Caddis
Egg Sucking Leach
Gold Ribbed Hare's Ear
Does that sound about right? What size hooks should my dad get?
Thanks in advance.
