First time fishing in Canada

Hi all,
I have been reading loads of threds and picking up loads of tips. Thanks,

Family and I are taking a holiday in Canmore Canada for two weeks, end of July next year. My brother-in-law has just bought a place out there and is wanting to move over there in the future. So hopefuly I can get out there quite alot.
Anyway for this holiday I want to get out there and stretch some line. I have fly fished for about 20 odd years now, but not to a very high standard. Also I have not been now for about 2 years due to family ties. But I really miss it and want to get back into thee sport I love.
So I have my gear, but was wondering what sort of tackle I will need that might be different to mine? Thinking about getting new rod, line,(ok for reels, because I use them mainly for storage), but if there's a package with reel thrown in, I'll have it. Is there anybody out there that can give me some examples of set-ups please. I will be fishing the Bow and maybe a lake? My budget is up to about $300(can). For whole outfit?

Also, is it worth me buying from over their and then shipping it over here? Any shops or websites would be great?
That's all for now,
many thanks,
