What Should Customers Bring

This list includes items that most anglers use during a fly-fishing trip with World Cast Anglers. Each guide carries Orvis fishing equipment, which guests are welcome to use at no extra cost. Sometimes this is a better solution than the hassle of airplane travel with fly rods. Fly selection varies with the time of year. Each guide will assist clients in selecting about a dozen flies for a full-day trip as well as one new leader from the our fly shop/Orvis store at the start of each trip. Those clients who chose an overnight trip will want to purchase more flies and perhaps two leaders. Guides will also be able to help supplement flies throughout the trip. Please call World Cast Anglers with any questions or concerns. Our fly shops in Victor, Idaho (208-787-0082) and Island Park, Idaho (208-558-7068) as well as the Orvis Store in Jackson (307-733-5407) are very helpful and can outfit you with any last-minute items.

FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to rent a car?
A. Renting a car is not necessary as we provide complimentary pick up and drop off service from Jackson Hole Airport. The START Bus or South Teton Area Rapid Transit will laso take you all over the town of Jackson and has service out to Teton Village. Your World Cast guide will also provide transportation in most cases to and from the resort on your fishing days.

What to wear?
A. The weather in the greater Yellowstone ecosystem consists of dry summer heat with occasional rainy days. Even though it may look sunny in the morning, weather moves quickly out here and it is always important to bring rain gear in case of the occasional summer shower passing through. We suggest wearing shoes which you don't mind getting wet (i.e. sandals, old sneakers, Crocs etc.) as there will be times when you may need to get your feet wet getting in and out of the boat. Additionally, there will be times in the summer where wet wading, in water no deeper than mid-calf, will be the best way to put both anglers on fish and it would be smart to have shoes which you don't mind getting wet. The water temperatures in the summer are cool, but not too cold on the feet. A hat and sunscreen are necessary for protection from the bright sun and the reflection off the water.
