Bleach does the trick with your gear, not sure about used flies, you can't put bleach on them. Other countries are real strict when bringing over your own gear. New Zealand I think is the hardest you pretty much have to send your stuff over a month ahead of time. Iceland you need a cert from a vet that your equipment has been disinfected. May be that traveling fisherman are bringing in the disease in which case it will be hard to control. On the brighter side some of the rivers in Montana had it and after a few years the bows came back and seemed to be larger in size. I don't know if there is a time span when the disease will "wash away"?
