Every effort should be made to stay comfortable while outdoors. Depending on the season, good quality layered clothing, including rain gear should be brought with you on a float trip. Other essentials might include polarized sunglasses, bug spray, sunblock, and a hat. Waders make the best raingear from the chest down, and also provide warmth. In addition, you are encouraged to use your own fishing equipment, as long as it fits the application for its intended use. Guides generally bring extra equipment along should the need arise. The guides also carry an assortment of flies, and/or additional flies can be purchased from the shop.
