You don't mention where you are going, but one can usually target bones, permit, and carvelle without a boat.

I do recommend that you purchase a setup though. You need to practice casting (from your yeti obviously ) prior to the trip.

You need to be able to shoot lots of line with very few back cast. Practice your double haul. You want to be able to shoot 60ft of line with little to no effort. Practice your strip set. Also practice making close soft presentations. You don't want you fly slamming the water on the 40ft cast. Good luck.
You forgot the 40mph cross winds.

Also make sure whatever you get has a great warranty. My sage 9wt is now in pieces. Rough day.

Hopefully it won't just be new rod sections either but actually a full new rod.

Sage has a pretty good warranty. It will depend mostly on how it got to be in it's present state.

Sage and Orvis are actually good about repairs including even our F-ups. I took a two piece and made it a 9 piece with my truck door hitting not once but twice
