The fish hadn't moved, and neither had you. Three hours of casts and refusals: the fish was still feeding strong, and you were at the end of your rope. Every fly in your box had been tried and retried, resulting in a weary arm and the wish for the reserve boxes over the hill in the back of your truck. Yet the fish remained. If only you had the right stuff, that fish would have been safely stored away in the film on your camera! Except that your camera was back in the truck as well. Today was just not your day.
If you remember one thing
, remember this: when fly fishing, you lose
50% of your warmth in the winter, and gain 50% of summer heat through
your head. Okay, maybe not exactly 50%, but you understand. Your head
can control the majority of your temperature gain, or loss. If you don't
have the right cap for the occasion, the results can be deadly, if not
downright uncomfortable. We've weeded through the endless collections of
hats that are out there and have narrowed it down to a select few that
we know work. We know they work because they're what we wear when we go
Wearing the right apparel while you're out on the water
can make the difference between a good day and bad day. By wearing the proper clothes, you can concentrate
on the fishing, not the heat, cold and rain. At Leland, we know how
important selecting the right apparel can be. We've fished all over the
world and in almost all weather conditions. Our advice? Buy the right
clothes before you go on that trip, so you have it when you need it!
Good fly fishing clothing is designed to make your overall experience
not only more comfortable, but safer as well. Whether you’re going to
Belize, British Columbia, or your local river, bring the right gear.
Your fishing experience will be more enjoyable!
