FAQS

For saltwater fly fishing, you need a sturdy rod and reel, like our Helios rod with a Hydros reel, plenty of saltwater flies, and clothing designed to block harmful sun rays, dry quickly, and wick away moisture. You’ll find all the gear you need for saltwater fly fishing at Orvis.

We designed the Helios fly rod for the experienced angler who demands precision and accuracy with every cast. Find the Helios 3D and 3F here as well as budget-friendly options in fly rods from our Recon and Clearwater lines. Choose a full saltwater fly-fishing outfit, or pair your existing rod or rods with our Mirage, Hydros, Clearwater, or Battenkill fly reel. These reels offer the size and strong drag essential for casting to and hauling in big saltwater gamefish. Explore options in fly line with the correct density, taper, and stiffness for saltwater environments. Our PRO saltwater fly line offers optimal performance for targeting tropical gamefish in hot weather and warm water.

Choose a 9’ fly rod for saltwater fishing.

The best weight for a saltwater fly rod depends on the target species. A 6wt, 7wt, or 8wt will get the job done for inshore species up to about 10 pounds. These are good weight rods for the flats. A 9wt rod makes a good choice for larger fish in bays or lighter offshore fishing, but choose a 10wt if you’re fishing offshore for kingfish or cobia. For tarpon, larger jacks, or sharks, choose 11wt or 12wt. 

Use a designated saltwater reel for saltwater fly fishing. Saltwater reels are designed to withstand the corrosive effects of salt, and they offer the appropriate drag. The Orvis Hydros reel is an excellent saltwater fly-fishing reel.

You need a saltwater reel size that matches the weight of your target species and your rod weight. So, if you have a 9wt rod, use a 9wt reel.

Our best selling saltwater flies include the Clouser Minnow, Lefty’s Deceiver, Crazy Charlie, any of the Chocklett’s patterns, and the Merkin Crab.

Dress for sun protection, cooling, and comfort while saltwater fly fishing. Our PRO Sun Hoodie and Crew boast a UPF 50+ rating for maximum protection from the punishing tropical sun, and they’re made in a performance fabric to promote rapid evaporation and impressive cooling. Our Sun Skiff pants offer the same protection from the sun with just-right stretch built in for comfort and mobility. Ultralight Wading Boots come in men’s and women’s sizes and offer a lighter-weight option ideal for a saltwater fishing environment. The women’s and men’s Ultralight Convertible Waders feature an innovative 4-layer waterproof breathable nylon shell, also perfectly suited for saltwater conditions. The popular Christmas Island Bootie and PRO Approach Shoe allow you to walk in warm water without waders while keeping your feet protected. You’ll also find fly-fishing outerwear suited to the rigors of saltwater fishing, including the waterproof and packable Ultralight Storm Jacket.

Wear polarized sunglasses for fly fishing, preferably with UV protection, scratch-resistant lenses, and a lightweight, comfortable frame.
