Those guys have a special arrangement with vendors which helps when stuff happens. It is always nice to have your own stuff, but if you are buying new stuff or have not used it before, you might as well use the tackle that the guides provide. It is usually tried and tested. Just a thought, since you may only use the stuff you buy once or twice.
I think that is excellent advice. If they are fly friendly/experienced captains, they likely have the right equipment. Good luck and post photos.

We fished conventional blue water charters that were open to us giving it a try.
Not enough sailfish numbers this trip to try on the the fly. We did catch 15 mahi mahi though. They usually hit the long lines and were not open to teasing up to fly distance. Our rooster fish charter was bunk.
