Fly-fishing guides

Get the right gear before heading out

While you might be able to get by without specialized equipment and clothing for other activities, you’ll need the basics like a fly rod, fly-fishing vest, waders and wading boots for fly-fishing. Heading into the water with the wrong apparel can be dangerous, uncomfortable and unsuccessful.

Find a mix of quality and value

When it comes to fly-fishing equipment, you really do get what you pay for. If you’re shopping on a budget, look for a blend of quality and value. Very cheap products tend to easily break and replacements can end up costing more in the long run.

Tailor your equipment to the type of fishing you plan to do

Will you be fishing mostly streams and rivers, or are you headed to the ocean for saltwater fishing? Buy gear that’s specifically designed for your fish of choice.
Consider a combo if you’re new to the sport. Beginners can save money while still getting a quality rod, reel, line and more by shopping for a combo or “outfit” that includes everything you’ll need to get started.
