Guided Fly Fishing
An experienced guide is included in your package; 3 anglers per boat in weeks of 9 rods and 2 anglers per boat in weeks of 6 rods, daily jet-boat transportation on the river and fishing rights from the time of your arrival until your departure.
All anglers, whether beginner or expert, can count on knowledgeable, experienced guides that have spent seasons on the Sustut to help you, or not help you, as much or as little as necessary. Catch rates are highly variable depending on endless environmental factors. But generally as a rule of thumb, one fish landed per angler per day is a wonderful goal that is very achievable. There are many occasions throughout each season when catch rates exceed this number.
Double-handed rods or spey rods are the most effective tools of this trade and are especially useful to beginner anglers enabling them to cover water efficiently after a short lesson from your guide. A 7wt or 8wt rod in the 12 to 14 foot range paired with a skagit or modern shooting head in grains 375 to 650 depending on your setup is recommended. Longer rods are generally better for less experienced anglers.
Full floating and a range of Sinking Tip lines or “sink tips” are most useful. Either a selection of varying lengths of T-14, T-11 or a selection of the modern MOW tips are best and commonly understood in the industry. A selection of 30/20/15/12 pound Maxima or equivalent is the standard in monofilament leader material.
