Recommended Fly Fishing Gear
Hat: Hats keep faces from being sun burned and shade the eyes for better vision.
Polarized Sunglasses: Polarized sunglasses allow an angler to see into the water and also help remove the suns glare from the waters surface, allowing anglers to see their flies easier.Polarized glasses also protect eyes from harsh sunlight and inadvertent casts.
Sunscreen: Don't forget to put this on.
Summer : Start with a lightweight long sleeve shirt, preferably a quick dry material. Be prepared to layer with a sweatshirt or fleece jacket for cool mornings and evenings. Have a rain jacket for occasional summer thunderstorm. Quick dry shorts are perfect for wet wading on hot summer days. Quick dry pants work well also and protect legs from the sun and bushes.
Cold weather (spring/autumn ): Fleece pant to wear under waders throughout the season. Heavy socks are a must as feet are constantly submerged when fishing. A warm sock will be more comfortable when wet wading as well.
Camera: We highly recommend disposable, water proof cameras, available at the shop. Use the digital camera when not in the water.
Fingerless Gloves: Whether they are fleece or wool, fingerless gloves keep hands plenty warm and keep sensitive fingers in touch with the line and rod.
Waders: Breathable waders will let your sweat evaporate and keep you warmer than the much more restrictive neoprene
