So what are some important elements for your fly fishing adventure? Here are what we have our eyes on this season.

Sunglasses are imperative to have a good fly fishing experience. These sunglasses are not only functional but definitely look really cool as well. Keeping the sun out of your eyes will make your day a lot more enjoyable. *Use a neck strap; losing you sunglasses is never fun!

The right rod makes all the difference for fly fishing. This rod is a 5 weight which is perfect for most fly fishing in Colorado. Although you might want to get a bigger rod, in this instance bigger is definitely not going to be better.

These waders are both durable and breathable. Articulated fit legs make moving and wading comfortable. An adjustable waist also makes it easy to add or shed layers for different temperatures. You can also convert these to waist highs for summer dry fly fishing.

Dr Slick Tyer Tool Kit

Anglers can never have to many flies, and this toolkit makes it easy to make your own flies on the go. It is small and portable and has all the tools you need to start creating your own flies. When making your own flies I would recommend seeing what insects are found in the area as fish are more likely to go after insects that they are used to.
