Here's a list of what to bring for all your fly fishing adventures.

    • Secondary rod options 9’ 3 wt – good for smaller tributaries
  • Fly lines (appropriate weight to match rods – floating)
  • GoreTex Breathable waders
    • Felt soled wading boots or sandals
  • Polarized sunglasses
  • Hat (wide brims to guard against sun)
  • Rain jacket
  • Gloves (if early/late season visit)
  • Long sleeved shirts (preferably with collars)
  • Polar fleece vest or jacket
  • Quick dry shorts/long pants
  • Fleece or nylon long pants to be worn under waders
  • Hiking boots (if planning on fishing Yellowstone National Park)
  • Fly vest or fanny pack
  • Sunscreen
  • Insect repellent
  • Camera

If you prefer to use our equipment or purchase needed items, our fully stocked on-premise fly shop will be able to fix you up.

Clothing to Consider

Our temperatures vary widely during the seasons and can change in a very short period of time. It is not surprising to see a front push temperatures down 50 degrees in minutes, so we recommend you come prepared. It's all about dressing in layers so you are comfortable throughout the day and changing temperatures.

  • Casual attire is acceptable at the ranch for all occasions
    • Blue jeans, shorts, etc.
    • Boots for hiking or walking the premises
    • Gym or deck shoes for the lounging times
    • Heeled boots for horseback riding
  • Polar fleece jacket or vest for the cool mornings/evenings
  • Hat
  • Sunglasses
  • Long sleeve shirts are suggested for sun protection
