Bonefish Gear List (Ridiculous Clave)

Just thought I would start a thread to talk about what to bring...

The best polarized shades you can afford, cheap spare


Good flats hat, and spare

sun-gloves are not a bad idea

Fast-dry light colored long sleeve shirts with collar that can be raised and preferably buttoned, spares*

fast-wicking polypro tee shirts made for hot weather is desired, spares*

fast-wicking polypro underwear for wet-wading, spares*

fast-wicking zip-off leg flats pants in light colors, spares*

socks that work well inside wet-wading shoes

good wet-wading shoes that protect against coral cuts and resist filling with sand and muck

chest pack, sling or something to hold water and camera

rod, reel, line, leader, tippet, flies, etc.

travel tying kit

sandals for before/after

personal first aid kit

small collapsible water jug

bug juice

* fast wicking clothing is night and day different in terms of comfort, particularly when wet wading. Most noticeable of all is the performance underwear as compared to cotton.

Pls add anything you can think of.
