Here is a complete list of fly fishing gear for fly fishing.

Fly Fishing Gear

“Can you put together a fly fishing gear checklist?”, it’s one of the questions we get asked the most here. What fly fishing gear do I actually need, and what can I go without? Like anything, there are certain pieces of gear that you actually do not need. There’s areas that you can save a little money, and others that you shouldn’t.

From our fly fishing gear list above, we’re going to do overhead breakdowns of each section of gear here in this article. Of course, we’ll link up any and all relevant articles inside our rundowns below.

If anything, our goal with Fly Fish and Camp is to share some of the joy that we’ve been able to find while standing armpit deep in the middle of a stream somewhere deep in the wilderness. If we can inspire that first cast, or the first fish on the fly, we’ve done our job.

Fly Boxes

When it comes to fly boxes, there really is nothing that compares to the Tacky Fly Boxes we have grown to love. With that being said, you’ll need to consider different fly boxes for different situations.

Fly Boxes have innovated in recent years, basically making a boring category of fly fishing.. not boring. The Flydrophobic box from Tacky by Fishpond has broken the fly fishing internet as far as we’re concerned and it’s well worth the investment.
