Buying Tips

The rod and reel are essential for every fly angler. Most fly rods are built with extremely light materials, like graphite, that produce a strong yet agile tool for casting a fly line directly to your target.

Shorter rods are ideal for fishing where space is constructed, so anglers can avoid having their line caught in nearby brush. Longer rods deliver a smooth, long and accurate cast on open water, like a saltwater beach. Choose a reel that produces smooth line movement and maximum strength for pulling in your catch.

Novice fly anglers might opt for a fly rod and reel combo, which takes the guesswork out of selecting the right equipment.

Expert Advice

The tippet is the thinnest part of your fishing line. It is important that the weight of your tippet matches the weight of your fly for optimal precision. In short, lighter lines are meant for casting lighter flies, while heavier lines should be used with heavier flies.

Outfit yourself for the water with fishing vests and waders. Look for vests that maximize utility with a variety of pockets to store lures, bait, tools and much more. Lightweight fabric on your vest provides ventilation to keep you cool when the temperatures are hot. Choose chest and waist waders designed with reinforced stitching to safeguard against water leakage.

Relax in the water: Try a float tube for comfort and convenience. Most float tubes are equipped with storage areas for you to stash your fly fishing equipment.
