When you call to book your Bow River float or
southern Alberta wading adventure. I will go through everything in detail
- A 4 or 5 weight rod will do nicely for dry flies and a 6
or 7 weight for nymphs and streamers is ideal
- A floating line will be used 90% of the time.
- A fast sink tip is an asset on the Bow River and for going after big Bull Trout on the Oldman River.
- Breathable waders are ideal but not necessary and I do recommend felt soled boots because the river
rocks can be quite slick.
- Shorts or quick dry pants for hot days when waders are not required.
- Polarized sunglasses
- Rain Jacket with a hood.
- Hat or hats (it can get windy)
- Fleece jacket (I’ve seen snow in August on the Bow!)
- Mosquito repellent/sunscreen
- Camera (your friends will never believe the fish stories your going to tell without pictures as proof)
- A535 deep heating rub (after fighting fish all day you are going to need it!)
Patterns required: bring your favourites (I have seen redfish patterns work on the Bow). I will give you a detailed list for the time of year when you book as hatches can vary from year to year.
