THE PERFECT KIT FOR FLY FISHING FOR TROUT

By: Dan Nelson – October 22, 2014

While every angler has their own ideas about what they need (want) in terms of gear for their own form of fishing, there are a few universal truths we all can agree on. For instance, when targeting trout it’s nearly impossible to beat a 9-foot 5-weight rod for all-around performance. This rod configuration works whether you are chasing 6-inch rainbows in high alpine lakes or 26-inch browns in deep, cold Montana rivers.

With these universal truths in mind, and in consultation with our fly fishing review team, I’ve compiled the items needed to create the Perfect Trout Fishing Kit for fly fishers.
