BackCountry Adventures Fly Fishing Checklist

Below is the Checklist we send to our clients before our fly fishing trips.

We provide all the fishing gear so everyone can enjoy the trip, learn to fly fish and catch fish.

If you are fishing on your own, you will have to bring your own gear and make sure you have plenty of water and snacks.

We are in Utah, so folk must have a Utah fishing license to fish, but you need to remember to get a fishing license in your state as well.

Live in Northern Utah or Planning a visit? Come fish with us on the Provo River (or one of the other many rivers).
