WHAT TO BRING WHEN FLY FISHING

Cothing and equipment to bring on your adventure

Fishing Equipment:

gear list Fly Fishing

  • Your Rod and Reel
  • 9ft Rod
  • 5-6 weight if possible
  • Line WF
  • Camera
  • A wide brimmed hat
  • Polaroid fishing glasses – Amber lenses are best
  • Sunscreen and Insect repellent

I have available an average selection of rods and reels. While the quality is extremely good, the selection may be limited.

All flies, drys, wets, nymph or streamers can be supplied. I tie all my own and have a few secrets that fish very well. You are welcome to bring along your own patterns.

Clothing:

gear list Fly Fishing

  • Comfortable footwear, i.e. Light
  • Walking boots – Meidel and Kenetrek brands are good places to start.
  • Long johns and shorts
  • Be prepared to get wet
  • Be comfortable, no bright colours.
  • Body waders for winter conditions.
  • No felt bottomed boots please.
  • Hiking boots only with cleats.
  • Please ENSURE you have CLEAN HIKING BOOTS! NZ Customs will check for outdoor foot wear and there is a $NZ500 fine for not declaring outdoor footwear and it gets worse if footwear contains debris in the soles.
