    First time on that stretch of the South Fork. Looking forward to fishing it again later this summer.

    Thanks again for leading the trip, Wallace!

    Awesome trip. My first in a kayak. Met some great guys. Caught some fish. Didn't flip. Life is good!

    Bryan, here are some essentials to bring:
    - PDF
    - Knife you can reach easily
    - Rain gear (just in case)
    - Plenty of drinking water
    - Sunscreen
    - Rope (15' or so)
    - Food
    - Dry bag
    - Sunglasses (and a leash for them)
    - Forceps or needle-nose pliers for hook removal

    Are you planning on just fly fishing, or will you have a spinning rod/reel too? I just have spinning gear, and usually use a mix of soft plastics (tubes, Senkos and flukes), a couple spinnerbaits, and a few topwater baits like Torpedoes or buzzbaits.
