Ryan is a fish farmer and family man. He, like Rex, seems to keep it simple and makes me feel like I have too much stuff! Oh well! So, as Ryan says, in his pack at the moment is a mad two-year-old with an opinion on everything… (I reckon that only going to worse as she gets older!) haha!
Once in Lesotho:
Rod: Stealth Deep Red 8’8” 3wt
Reel: Silvercreek 2-4 wt
Line: Rio #3 Pocket Water DT
Fly boxes: Three boxes. One for dries, one for nymphs and one for the randoms that don’t yet have a home.
Leader/Tippet: Spools of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 7x, 8x. If the fish are looking and not taking its more often the tippet at fault than the fly.
Pack: Moon-bag / Fanny-pack… there just isn’t a manly name for it, but it keeps all my essentials on the river leaving my upper body free and flexible. (You could probably get away with Bum-Bag! – Fred)
Other: Leatherman Charge TTi – essential!
Gink Fly Floatant
Strike Indicator Putty
Amadou mushroom leather for reviving dry flies especially cdc.
