What to bring?

"Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it."

* Bring a good hat with a wide brim. This will help keep you cool in the mid-day heat and keep your neck, face and ears from burning.
* A good pair of polarized sunglasses.
* Sun screen. At least an SPF rating of 30 is recommended. And bug repellent. (We also provide this if you need it).
* Water shoes or old tennis sneakers.
* At least 2 quarts of water or Gatorade. Can supply for you on request.
* The weather in Nebraska can change at a moment's notice so bring some rain gear if you have it.
* A change of dry clothes for after the trip as well as a towel.

* Your favorite lunch and snack. This can be provided for you at request. A soft sided cooler and ice will also be made available to keep your drinks nice and cold.
* With the heat and exertion involved in kayak fishing, it is not advisable to bring alcoholic beverages.
