Fly Fishing


It's the rhythm of the thing. Sure, nothing beats seeing that dry fly disappear and netting a beautiful cutthroat. But you don't have to. The conversations of the river, the rustle of the pines in the breeze, just standing there in the water flinging a fly is enough. You're nodding your head already, right? For those who'd rather wade a river than lounge on a couch, we have all the gear you need to make your venture successful--whether you land fish or not.
 
Fishing Vests
Pockets! Why wouldn't you want more pockets? There's always something else you could store. Get a fly-fishing vest with lots and lots of pockets and organize your fly-fishing gear the way you've always wanted.

Fly Boxes
The only thing in this world that has more variety of style than fly boxes might be the cereal aisle at the grocery store, but even that's too close to call. Nevertheless, you can certainly find the perfect fly box for you. Step inside and take a look.

Fly Fishing Accessories
These are all the wonderful little tools that make life easier on the water. These are also all the wonderful little expenses that never need itemized receipts, lest the bookkeeper at home start squawking too much.

Fly Fishing Clothing
Do you need clothes like these to catch fish? False. Will clothes like these help you catch more fish? False'ish. Will you appreciate the investment you make to fish in clothes like these? True, time and again.

Fly Fishing Combos
Let's face it: combos often get a bad rep. But they have their place. For those who are just getting started, for those who don't have the money to invest much in the sport, or for those who never liked homework, a combo could be perfect for you.

Fly Fishing Packs
You don't need a vest, you know. In fact, in terms of simplicity, ease of access, and pure functionality, a pack may serve you better. Don't get caught in the swirling vortex of mediocrity just because it's "the way things are."

Fly Fishing Rods
Stiffer, better, faster, stronger. That's the mantra of the fly-rod industry. But how stiff is stiff enough? How much power do you really need? What the heck is a five weight anyway? And WHY are they so pricey? Find most of the answers inside.

Fly Line
The art of fly casting lies in your control of the rod and the line. The chemistry between these two is a crucial balance of weight and power--one that could explode in your face. But when you nail it? *heavenly music begins*

Fly Reels
Ziiiing! Best sound in the world: a fish on! But there's nothing worse than hearing Ziiiing-SNAP! and losing the fish of your dreams. Not to mention your last #18 Parachute Adams. And worst of all, a reel with a better drag would have changed everything.

Leaders
Remember the days before leaders with a manufactured taper? All those Bloodknots stair-stepping down in poundage? Yeah, let's be done with those forever. Give me a pristine taper on fluoro with a loop-to-loop connection, please and thank you.

Nets
You could land a hundred fish without a net, I know, but as soon as you leave it at home, you'll snap off a monster at your feet. If you don't own a net, you probably know this feeling all too well. Go ahead and splurge, just to minimize regret.

Rod Tubes/Reel Shields
Alright, you invested in a rod and a reel. Or several. Do you leave them to bounce around in your truck bed? Do you leave your reel exposed while hiking to get bashed against rocks and trees? Nay, my friend. Protect your investment!

Tenkara Gear
Simple, elegant, practical. This traditional Japanese form of fly-fishing is turning heads in the west. It has never been so easy to catch wary trout on small mountain streams. Jump on board this Tenkara train and see what everyone's talking about.

Tippet
Nothing is more important than your tippet. Except maybe your fly. But if you can't keep the fly attached to your leader, you're shot. Point is, choose wisely. Well, and practice those knots.

Waders
Now, you don't have to prove anything by wet-wading in October. Really. It's okay to get a pair of waders when the water temperature is below 35 degrees. I promise. And actually, they're pretty handy in all sorts of other situations, too. Prove me wrong.

Wading Boots
How long have you had those old wading boots? No, seriously. That's just asking to lose a whole day on the river because of a blow-out. There are WAY too many cool features on wading boots these days to keep tempting fate with your old pair.
