What tackle do I need?
Posted by CharlieM on May 16 2005
My wife and I will be spending about a week in the Kenai starting in mid to late July and we plan to fish as much as possible. Our budget will not allow for guided trips so we are researching for information. We have read several of the books listed on this site but would really like some personal input. We are not picky about the type of fish we catch. Just want to catch something. We will not be keeping any fish so we don't care if they are the best table fare. Our plans are to fish Resurrection creek, at Hope, one day. The B & B we will be staying at is on the Kenai river and the owner said we can fish from his dock. We intend to fish at Whittier near the tunnel one day. We also plan to fish at the "fishing hole" in Homer. As far as tackle goes, we will be bringing casting rods (20# mono and 30# braid) and spinning rods (8# & 10# mono)We have a decent selection of pixies and vibrex spinners. It looks as if we will need to use flies in some areas and as I understand they can be rigged to fish with casting outfits. It would be greatly appreciated if you would tell me if our outfits are OK. Also, what terminal tackle (flies, sinkers, etc) do I need to bring with us? A detailed description of how to rig the flies for use on a casting outfit would be a great help.
I have really enjoyed this forum and have learned a great deal from it. Your generosity in sharing your knowledge would be appreciated more than you know.
Thanks in advance.
