2019 Women's Fly Fishing Gear Guide

Ivan Orsic / Dec 13, 2018

Looking west to our snowcapped Rockies has all of us at Trouts thinking ahead to next season with days spent on the water. Whether wading our favorite stream, or spending time with good friends in a drift boat, the short days of winter have us pinning for some summer fishing.

And with some of 2019 gear starting to trickle in, we've cultivated a collection for the female angler of some of the latest and greatest gear so that you'll be primed and ready to go when you wade into your favorite river in 2019.

SIMMS WOMEN'S MATAURA PANT

Waders are an obvious choice for any list of essentials and while there are some great options like the G3s, Freestones, and Tributaries, but forgive us if we're already looking forward to wet wading season. So, let's talk wet wading pants! The Mataura Pants protect you from the sun (UPF50) and feature fantastic moisture management. With a slim, flattering cut, these wet wading pants are perfect for those summer days spent knee deep in a trout stream!

SIMMS WOMEN'S BREEZE TUNIC

Lightweight, breathable and UPF50, the Breeze Tunic is a great lightweight hoody option for those aforementioned wet wading days that only a couple of months away. The Simms Women's Breeze Tunic features Nilit Breeze which has a unique cooling effect to help maintain a comfortable body temperature when you're battling that summer heat.

FISHPOND SWITCHBACK WADING BELT SYSTEM

The Switchback Wading Belt System is a versatile, modular system that is perfect for the angler who wants to customize their wading experience. This new system includes a pack that slides independently from back to front, a molded net holster for long-handled nets, a shoulder strap with a tool and fly attachment and options to attach our new molded wading staff pouch, drink holder, and Quickshot rod holder. This wading belt system is functional and purposeful. The system can be worn with a variety of other packs, vests, gear options of your choosing.

SAGE IGNITER FLY ROD

On many of our favorite Colorado and western US fisheries, it's hard to escape the wind. Enter the Igniter, while this rod is meant for throwing big rigs, we've really enjoyed it in the smaller, more traditionally trouty sizes like the 4 and 5 weight. Perfect for the angler who wants to cut through that head wind and turn over a nymph, streamer, or big dry fly rig on the Dream Stream or the Colorado!

ROSS ANIMAS FLY REEL

The newly redesigned Ross Animas is a workhorse of a fly reel. With one of the most reliable drag systems in the industry, this Colorado-Made Fly Reel is a sharp addition to any outfit.

SCIENTIFIC ANGLERS AMPLITUDE SMOOTH INFINITY FLY LINE

Take the revolutionary AST Plus slickness additive from the Amplitude series of fly lines and put that into a more traditional smooth line and you've got yourself one bad-ass fly line. In the Infinity taper, you're hard-pressed to find a better line designed for the variety of presentations and fishing styles that trout angling requires. The INFINITY taper is overweighted by 0.5 sizes to load modern fast-action fly rods Amplitude Smooth fly line is designed for flats fishing for bonefish, tarpon, permit, snook, redfish, and seatrout. It's overweighted by 0.75 sizes to load rods quickly and it's short, powerful head turns over long leaders with heavy flies.

SIMMS WOMEN'S VAPOR WADING BOOT

The Simms Women's Vaportread® Boot answers the call of remote water with a lightweight, hiking-friendly build, so you can follow the trail further or hike to the next access point with comfort.
