What to Pack on a Fly Fishing Camping Trip 

A fishing camping trip is something everyone should do in their lifetime – whether an avid angler or someone simply looking for a unique adventure. 

We’ve already covered the best rivers in the United States to fly fish, and now it’s time to cover the details! When heading out on a fishing trip in your Four Wheel Camper, here is our full guide & what to pack:

What to Pack For Clothing 

The first step to packing for a fly fishing trip is to research where you are going. Will it be a hot, muggy summer fly-fishing trip? Are you heading to rivers in the chilled air of fall? Climate and time of year will make a big impact on what to pack! 

No matter what temperature & location of your fly fishing trip, we recommend the following clothing items 

  • Quick dry pants 
  • Long sleeve fly fishing shirt 
  • Fly fishing hat or ballcap 
  • Breathable quick dry t-shirt
  • Waterproof sandals 
  • Waterproof hiking books 
  • Wool socks 
  • Wind/puffer jacket

Whether hot or cold, a long-sleeved fly fishing shirt is great for both sun protection and extra warmth. Long days on the river mean long sun exposure, so be sure to cover up!
