WHAT'S INCLUDED:

  • Please see the "FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS" for more information.

  • All fly and light tackle (spin) gear.  We encourage you to use your own equipment if that's more comfortable for you.  Please keep the amount of gear to a minimum.  If you choose to bring your own gear we recommend the following:

    • 8, 9, 10, & 11 wt fly rods and reels spooled with weight-forward floating fly line and plenty of 30lb or higher strength backing.  The size rods needed will depend on the conditions and fish we are targeting.  Please feel free to ask Capt. Brandon specifics about which rods to bring for when you will be fishing with him.

    • Medium to Med-Heavy spin or casting rods and reels spooled with at least 30lb-test braided line.

  • Transportation may be provided if needed.  Please discuss this with Capt. Brandon. (Please see Frequently Asked Questions.)

  • Fuel, Boat launching fee, & Ice when needed.

  • Professional photos taken of you and your trophy (CATCH & RELEASE). These photos are not to be cropped, edited, or used for profit in any way.

WHAT TO BRING:

  • Please see the "FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS" for more information.

  • Polarized sunglasses with amber/copper/brown/yellow colored lenses, Brimmed hat to shield the sun from your eyes.

  • Lunch, Refillable water bottle, Sunblock, Waterproof top and bottom outerwear to block wind and rain.

  • Warm layers of clothing for colder temperatures, Lightweight clothing for warmer temperatures. (Shorts and bare feet are NOT recommended due to the possibility of biting flies).  I recommend at least bringing pants and full-coverage shoes to put on in case the biting flies are too active for you.

  • A "Charter Passenger (3-day)" Louisiana fishing license is required for each angler, which can be purchased from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries (if the website is down or you're having difficulty call 1-888-362-5393).  This will cover you for up to 3 consecutive days which you will request.  An authorization number will be given to have with you on your charter(s).  You shouldn't need the hard-copy of the license if you have the authorization number.

  • Medications that you may require.

  • Notify the captain of any special accommodations needed.

  • Most importantly, bring a positive attitude and a willingness to adjust tactics and such depending on conditions.

Cancellations:

  • Cancellations made outside of 30 days of the booked date may be rescheduled for up to 1 year of the original booked date or the deposit may be refunded.

  • Cancellations made within 30 days of the booked date will forfeit the deposit.

  • Cancellations made within 10 days of the booked date and no-shows will be required to pay in full.

  • Cancellations must be submitted to captkeck@southernflyexpeditions.com.

  • Cancellations made by the captain because of unsafe weather conditions, mechanical issues, or emergencies may be refunded or rescheduled for up to 1 year of the original booked date.
