Fly Fishing Equipment

Before we get started, I want to thank all readers and I do want you to realize, I am not an expert. I have been fly fishing off an on for over a half century and have formulated the opinions I forward to readers here. By all means read all you can and formulate your own methods and fly fishing techniques. If you disagree (or agree) with any of our posts, please express your self. You will be heard.

Thanks to recent blog reader PW from Washington state, I have revisited posts written in the past. When one writes many posts, and to date there have been 288, you forget about many of the things which you have discussed. At least I forget. One easy way to access previous posts is by going to our "Quick View Blog Post Retrieval"

The subject today is  Fly Fishing Equipment. PW is new to fly fishing and curious about what to purchase. You can spend a ton (of $) trying to enjoy the sport and I am here to tell you it is not necessary. If you want to buy Orvis and Simms, knock yourself out, but it is not necessary. They do make really good stuff though. Discussed are easy ways to save a bundle and have a really great time fly fishing your favorite Idaho river/stream/lake.

Go to "Quick View" or simply click here to view subjects covered in the past:
     Big Y Flies - Discount Flies/Equipment
     Caddis Sports High Sierra II Float Tube
     Chest Packs v. Fishing Vests
     Float Tube Fins
     Fly Line Basics
     Fly Reel Basics

     Outcast Stealth Pro - Personal Pontoon
     RL Winston Company - Twin Bridges, MT
     Rod Weights - 101
     Travel Rods 2014
     Wading Boots
As you can see, there are a few subjects which I should have covered but haven't yet done so. There are also some which I am sure I haven't even yet thought of. If I live long enough, I can even save you more by showing you how to build your own fly rod and leaders. Knots, now there is a fine subject. You can also save a bundle by using Albolene for floatant and by tying your own flies.

All of these are only a click away at our "Post Rapid Retrieve Page". Use it often to reference those subjects in which you have an interest. Also consult our "Tags" below and at the end of each post for really cool references. Hey, if you think of a subject not yet covered, let me know.

Hard takes, tight lines, screaming reels, sore arms and great Idaho Fly Fishing to all. Try out our "Poor Man's Lanyard". This is all I have personally used for many years.
