Ten Things for the Traveling Fly Fisher

Ten Things for the Traveling Fly Fisher

Traveling anglers are a special breed. Not only do they love fly fishing, they will travel to fish, and often to tropical saltwater destinations. As a rule, saltwater fly fishing and fishing travel require an entirely different set of equipment, depending on species and destination, but there are many things that every angler will appreciate while travelling. Here's our staff's top ten picks for the 2020/2021 season.

2021 Saltwater Fly Fishing Wall Calendar - $17.99

Each month gives your salty angler a close up look at trophy tarpon, permit, bonefish, and snook, or puts you on the flats in prime fly fishing spots with this stunning wall calendar for 2021. 

BlackStrap Daily Tube Permit - $26.99

Staying cool and covered up on the flats while fishing is essential. This multifunctional UV neck gaiter will quickly become your favorite multi-functional tool against the elements. With dozens of wearing applications for any outdoor adventure, this lightweight, highly breathable, cooling neck gaiter features 4-way stretch fabric that is milled in the USA, keeps you protected from the blistering sun, dries quickly when damp, provides a barrier for cutting cold winds and has UPF 50+ UV sun protection.


Fishpond Dakota Carry-On Rod and Reel Case - $249.99

At 5.2 lbs and 31" x 9.5”" x 5", this bag fits airline carry-on specs and allows the angler to keep the most expensive and trip-making gear close at hand. This bag is designed to hold 9' 4-piece rods.

Fishpond All Natural Sunscreen - $12.99

Aside from being all natural, the very best thing about this SPF 30 sunscreen is that it is entirely fly line safe. The last thing a travelling angler wants is chemicals melting fly lines and absorbing into skin. It's also water resistant for 40 min and the clear zinc formula protects from a broad spectrum UVA/UVBS. The 2 oz container can be packed in carry-on luggage. 


Do It Yourself Bonefishing by Rod Hamilton with Kirk Deeter - $34.99

This is the authoritative guide written for DIY anglers targeting bonefish on the fly. Informed by twenty years of experience on the flats, Rod Hamilton and Kirk Deeter describe the allure of matching wits with one of fly fishing’s most elusive targets and discuss the reasons why more and more fly fishermen are seeking the challenge of catching bonefish without the aid of a guide. Do It Yourself Bonefishing is packed with useful tips to help all levels of fly fishermen locate and catch more of one of the world’s premier gamefish. Learn stalking strategies, how to spot bonefish, appropriate fly selection, and where to find the fish.

Built for the heat and humidity of flats fishing, this fast-wicking, quick-drying and highly breathable technical hoody is made from a soft 100% polyester (60% recycled) fabric with odor control and 50+ UPF sun protection. 

Howler Bros. Shoalwater Tech Pant - $139.99

The Shoalwater Tech Pants are designed to take you to places that aren't always dry and friendly. They are lightweight, amphibious and tough as nails. But don't worry, they are equally happy lounging around the house on Sunday afternoon.

Fishpond Tacky Box Original 2x - $39.99

Store all the bonefish flies in a Tacky Fly Fishing Fly Box and leave nothing behind. Slit silicone insert with offset rows securely holds flies.
