The Essential Necessities That You Need to Be Productive on the Water

There are several things that you will need to purchase before your fly fishing gear arsenal in full, which it will probably never will be. It seems there is always something missing and something on the wish list. Aside from the other main parts of the required equipment that we have already discussed, there are lots of small items that will be needed regularly. Items such as knott tyers, fly boxes, tippet spools, fly floatant, and more.

Here is a list of the other items you will eventually need if you plan to fish on your own.

Fly Floatant - Oily substance designed to keep the fly afloat

Nail Knot Tyer - A tool for attaching the leader to the fly line

Tippet Spools - line that is used to go from the leader to the fly so the fish won't

Line Cutters - use to cut line instead of using teeth

Tappered Leader - helps to let your line lay out straight instead of in a big blob
