What weight fly rod should I bring?
Due to the size of some of the frog Hollow Hogs, both for the protection of the resource and enjoyment of the angler, we recommend nothing smaller than a 5-weight fly rod.

What fly patterns do you suggest?
This depends upon the particular season. Of course, a great deal of insect emergence always takes place in the Spring & early Summer months. Your guide will be prepared with appropriate flies for the conditions.
