Fly Fishing Gear - Not Just For Men Anymore
Are you a woman that is thinking about joining your better half sometime in taking up fly fishing? These days, you don't have an excuse because of the ugly "men's waders" you might have to wear.
Today, with more and more ladies taking up the sport of fly fishing, manufacturers and distributors of gear and fly rods are taking notice. It's been a well known fact that a man's body is not built the same as a lady's body. There are differences, and these differences can be what keeps someone from being comfortable when it comes to outdoor clothing and gear.
Today, there are several manufacturers who are making a variety of wader models specifically aimed at women. They are constructed and designed differently so that a woman who is wearing them will be comfortable while wading in streams and rivers. These days, there's no excuse for not taking up fly fishing if it's the gear you think you will be uncomfortable wearing!
Gear manufacturers such as Simms and Redington offer excellent quality waders that are cut with a woman's shape in mind. As well, fly fishing jackets in women's styles and sizes can also be had.
It's not just the waders either. A typical lady's hand is smaller than a man's hand, and this has consequences when trying to cast a rod all day that has a grip with a diameter size for the typical man's hand. Rod manufacturers have understood that this can be a problem, and now there are fly fishing rods that are made especially for women.
Not only the fit of the fly rod handle, but decent fly rods are now available in feminine colours like pink and purple too, if that is your thing.
