The Best Gear for Fly Fishing in the Cowboy State

September 16, 2015 Buying Guides By Photo by Henry Phillips

Fly fishing in Wyoming comes with its own unique flair. From floating in drift boats to casting in waders on the Snake River or Flat Creek, the fly fishing scene in the Cowboy State offers something for everyone and requires a versatile kit to take advantage of secluded pools filled with rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout. Although Wyoming’s fishing scene is often overshadowed by Montana’s, with the right gear you can pull fish as quickly as you can cast. Resistol hats and Lucchese boots are not uncommon in the parking lot, but when it’s time to tie in, Wyomingites like their technical gear as much as the next guy. When you land a giant from that honey hole of cutthroat trout, you’ll be thanking us for putting you out there with the perfect setup for the wide and fast-flowing Wyoming rivers.
