When planning your food list, sit down with your group and organize each meal--people usually bring too much food. It is advisable to bring some emergency food (canned or dried) in case you don’t eat as much fish as you had planned or you are delayed by weather for a day. This seldom happens but it is good to be prepared.
Freeze bottled water to put in small coolers (less than 40 quarts). This will keep your food cool until you get to the camp. Lake water can be used for drinking if boiled for approximately 3 to 5 minutes.
Pack your food supplies in medium size boxes with lids and your personal gear in small duffle bags. Reels should be removed from rods and rods should be put in small holders or taped together to avoid damage. Dip nets should be placed in plastic bags and wrapped to avoid getting caught up on other gear.
As all trash will be flown out of the bush with you, make sure you have heavy duty plastic bags. There may be a supply of plastic bags already at camp but to be on a safe side, you should bring your own. Avoid large plywood boxes or double door coolers as they are difficult to load onboard the aircraft.
Guests are allowed 100 pounds per person, should you exceed that limit, your overload will be flown in later that same day, weather permitting, and at an extra cost of $500 USD per trip. Make sure the gear you require immediately is on board the aircraft.
