Travel / Fly fishing Vacation

freestonebound

If it swims I'm interested.
I am going on vacation in June (Oregon) and I have a few questions.The plane ticket, car rental, and lodging have already been scheduled. I have never flown somewhere to go fishing, only driven. Any advice you have would be greatly appreciated.

1. What is the easiest, most convenient way to bring your gear? (Three rods, three reels, waders / wading boots, fly vest (tech pack), 1 week of clothes.

2. I am hiring a guide for the North Umpqua and Deschutes. What is the customary (recommended tip)?

3. Anything else I might have missed or any other tips?

1. pack it all in your checked baggage
2. this is a tip, it depends on how you are treated, not what is customary.
3. It would help if you shared your location in your profile, we don't know if you are from Viet Nam or Iceland

Yep, put all your gear in your checked bag! I leave my rod tubes at home & use 2 hard plastic drain pipes with caps from the hardware store, they sit corner to corner in the bag & i fit 2 x 9' 4piece rods in their socks in each one!

I like to carry on enough stuff to fish in the event my luggage is delayed.

For my fishing trip in 2 months, my carry on list will be:
3 rods, 1 reel, 1 extra spool. This fits in my Sage mega rod cannon along with my rain gear.
1 fly box
Tippet, bobbers, etc (no hemostats, knives)
Waders with me, boots checked
Rain jacket and rain pants
Warm pants
1 shirt
2 pair socks and underwear
Light puffy jacket
Fleece top
Headlamp
Toiletries
Sunglasses
Tiny camp stove
Maps, fishing license, etc.
