Research is key out of the gate. What is in your area to help you get started. Check out our latest #TravelTips on visitidaho.org for more info we've put together for you.โ 
โ 
Some things to look into may be:โ 
โ 
Species of fish in your areaโ 
Fly shops โ€“ are there any local fly shops to help you get started?โ 
Fly-fishing clubs โ€“ a great way to meet new people and get in on club eventsโ 
Guides โ€“ the perfect teaching tool to get started with the basicsโ 
โ 
๐—˜๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜โ 
Donโ€™t invest in any gearโ€ฆ yet! See if fly-fishing is right for you first! Your guide will have gear for you, but for those interested in more research to educate yourself, the basics are:โ 
โ 
Fly-fishing rod โ€“ What rod is best for the species in your area and the flies youโ€™ll be throwing?โ 
Fly reel โ€“ Do you need a quality reel or simply a mechanism to hold your fly line?โ 
Fly line tapers โ€“ Floating, sinking or something in between?โ 
Leader types โ€“ Leader weight (breaking strength) and length.โ 
Flies โ€“ What are the species in your area eating and when?โ 
โ 
We hope this helps you plan your first time out and enjoy the stellar experience of fly-fishing in Idaho.โ
