My 3 Top Fly Fishing Equipment Picks – Fly Rod, Reel & Line

By

In our never ending quest to find "the ultimate" fly fishing equipment item, I have tried to list what I consider top picks for: fly rod, fly reel, fly line, fly vest or pack, waders & boots and streamside accessory. A very hard exercise - I am sure that many will disagree with my choices - so let me know by leaving a comment in the section at the end of the post.

My choices went towards fly fishing equipment that represent an amazing value or which is significantly superior to other similar gear.

#1 - Fly rod:TFO Lefty Kreh TiCr X 9ft #8 4 pcs - TFO TiCr X fly rodvery fast but smooth single hand fly rod - available with a Conversion kit to turn it into a two-handed 11' 3" rod that can be used for casting to striped bass, steelhead or salmon. (I sold all my other 8wts - even a T&T - this is such an amazing casting & fishing tool - Under $250!)

#2 Fly Reel: Loop Evotec Series (Lw, G3, G4, ...)
Beautifully made, they are light, versatile, have a very smooth yet strong and Loop Evotec LWdurable drag system, and they come in most fly line sizes. The Evotec LW 8eleven is an amazing reel for Steelhead fishing.

#3 Fly Line: Rio Gold fly lineRio Gold - great presentations, even at long ranges. My top recommendation for all-round trout fishing.
