General Packing List for a Fly-Fishing Trip

Our General Packing List collection includes the basic clothing, gear, and accessories anglers need for a fly-fishing trip at home or abroad. Choose from outerwear designed to handle the demands of unpredictable weather and untamed wilderness. For warmer weather, pack jackets and wading boots from our Ultralight line, as well as a buff or casting shirt with built-in insect repellent. Sun gloves are a must, and our PRO Approach Shoes make a nice alternative to bulkier standard wading boots. For cooler or cold conditions, packing layers and wearing them strategically wins the day. Look to our top-quality fly-fishing clothing, including our PRO Insulated Hoodie, for superior protection from wind and precipitation. Our softshell hoodie makes an excellent packable layer for days that start cool and then warm up. You’ll also find our recommendations in proven fishing flies, including Tom Rosenbauer’s hand-picked essential flies for trout fishing. Our collection also includes the reliable fly-fishing tools every angler needs; stock up on the best nippers, forceps, and fly-fishing accessories to keep in your waterproof sling or chest pack. Browse our elite Helios fly-fishing rods to find the one you need, and outfit it with the right reel from this collection. For generations, Orvis has supplied the best fly-fishing lines, tippet, and leaders to land your quarry and pull them to the net. Explore the options here and then pack them in our innovative line of Trekkage™ Luggage, and experience the next-gen tech in our evolved designs. Browse this convenient collection of the basic clothing and gear to pack for your next fly-fishing trip—and start planning it now.
