Fly fishing requires a lot of gear. It’s not always easy to find the best fly fishing gear for women. You can’t just wander to the riverside with a fishing pole in hand and be a happy, successful fly fisher. You need waders, boots, outerwear, rods and more. Sure, there’s no reason to break everything up into “for men” and “for women” (ahem… Bic for Women). However, it’s nice when your gear is a bit tailored to you. Here is a list of our favorite gear for fly fishing women.
Fly Fishing Gear for Women
Women’s G3 Guide Stockingfoot – Simms
Being comfortable while fly fishing starts with staying dry. Simms stepped up to the place with these women cut waders, because when you are casting chest deep in water, size matters. The Women’s G3 Guide Waders from Simms are tailored top to bottom for women, starting with a slim boot all the way up to the accommodating upper. These waders also come with a microfleece-lined hand warmer and zippered chest pockets where you need them.
Siren Wader – Reddington
Available in both a slim and curvy fit, the Siren Wader from Reddington is a high-quality product without all the dollar signs. The Kate is the slim fit, made to be narrower through the bust and hips. The Marilyn is the ideal fit for the curvaceous woman, with a curvier design through the bust and hips. Both fits were created to fit women properly, to keep you dry and comfortable.
Foot Tractor Wading Boots – Patagonia
Featuring award-winning aluminum bar technology, the Foot Tractor wading boots from Patagonia are everything you could want in a wading boot. The aluminum bars are strong enough to cut through algae and slime, soft enough to shape around rocks, grip well on muddy trails, don’t hold on to snow and are easy to clean. These wading boots are basically the Range Rover of wading boots.
Vapor Boot – Simms
Coming in at a more easily accepted price than the Patagonia boots, the Vapor Boots from Simms are a lightweight boot created to provide all-day comfort. With Simms’ precision women’s fit, you’ll be able to last all day casting lines. Featuring a hiker-inspired design and their VaporTread underfoot, the Vapor Boot provides ample support and comfort.
Grace Fly Rod & Reel – Sage
If you’re feeling really in touch with your feminine side, this all pink fishing setup will do the trick and more. It also supports a great cause; Sage donates $50 from the sale of each GRACE outfit to Casting for Recovery, a non-profit organization dedicated to giving women vital tools to overcome the challenges of breast cancer. Available in a 5 and 8 weight, the Grace Fly Rod & Reel is crafted from Graphite IIIe technology and outfitted with a Pink RIO Gold line and Sage 3200 series reel.
Brookie Semi-Custom Rod – SaraBella Fishing
Easily customize your rod with the Brookie Semi-Custom Rod from SaraBella Fishing. This simply customized rod allows you to choose your rod weight, rod length, rod color, thread color, grip shape, grip finish, wood type for reel seat and reel. Create an amazing rod in just a few minutes!
