Preparing for your Fly-in Fishing trip, what to pack?

When packing for fly-in fishing holiday, make your trip enjoyable by bringing the appropriate clothing to keep you warm and dry.
Late May and early June will have night time lows of 40-55 Fahrenheit and daytime highs of 55-75 Fahrenheit. 

If the weather is cloudy and rainy, you can expect cool conditions.

On hot sunny days the sunlight is very intense so sunscreen and a hat are a must.
