What Supplies Do You Need to Fly Fish?

In order to catch that monstrous fish you need a rod and reel plus certain other supplies in your possession, namely different lines, various apparel, and various flies. To make your trip more enjoyable, and at the same time make it a great experience, you need a variety of supplies.
So what kind of supplies do you need? To start you need a supply of different flies to attract the fish. When fly fishing you want to match the fly with the insects in the stream or water you are fishing. With a different arsenal of flies you are more likely to match your fly to the natural food source to the fish, and then you will catch more fish. This lets you adapt to the insects in the water to catch such fish.
You also want a supply of different lines which in turn will allow you to fish in different weather conditions while you are on your fly fishing trip. Different lines also let you change the line for different color water when fishing. One area of the fishing water in a lake or stream might be one color while another area might be another color. And suppose you fish in the morning in calm weather and then it becomes windy you might want to change to a heavier line so your casting is more productive.
Apparel is also important in supplies such as a fly fishing vest. The vest will hold all your supplies and make your trip more enjoyable. Most fly fishermen use a vest as it is convenient and supply easy access to your supplies.
So where do you shop for your supplies? Check your local fishing store and ask if they sell fly fishing supplies and if they do not I'm sure they can recommend a store that does. If they do then also ask what fly fishing supplies you will need for your trip. Another place to try is the internet. On the internet you can find thousands of stores who sell fly fishing supplies, such as Orvis, Cabala's, Bass Pro Shop to name a few. You can also purchase pre-made flies from these type of outlets if you don't want to make your own. If you do a quick search on the internet with your favorite search engine you can purchase lines, rods, reels, flies, apparel, books and videos on fly fishing.
Before going out on your fishing trip do a little planning ahead of time with your supplies. Try to get your gear right before you go that way your trip is more enjoyable and your will have a better success rate or catching that big fish! Good luck to you!
