SUN GLASSES AND APPAREL
Polarized sun glasses and a fishing hat will give you protection when you are on the river all day. Layering your clothing, and water protection will give you added comfort and protection from the weather so you can enjoy your day.
Having the right equipment is very important. It is one of the three basic requirements needed to be succesful. You need to find the right stream, river or lake and you need to use the right tactics in order to catch fish.

GLASSES & APPAREL
If you don’t already own a pair of polarized sunglasses you will want to soon. They will allow you to look into the water more clearly than other sunglasses. You will actually be able to see the fish moving around below the water surface, which gives you a huge advantage when fly-fishing. If you have never looked through polarized sunglasses you probably don’t understand the importance of them. All I can say is “seeing is believing.”
If you are like me when you go fly-fishing you will start early in the morning and quit in the late afternoon or early evening. Since you will experience different temperatures throughout the day it is a good idea to layer your clothing. I usually will wear a T-shirt, a long sleeve cotton shirt and some sort of pullover or rainwear when I start the day. Throughout the day I adjust to the temperature by removing or adding layers of clothing. It is important to stay comfortable.
What is fly-fishing without a cool hat? Baseball caps are great but they don’t protect the back of your neck or side of your neck from the sun. A hat that has the sun protection in the back and sides is perfect for the hot summer blazing sun.
