Here are some fishing and backcountry gear that may help in taming that elusive trout.

Fly fishing is the most sporting of angling activities, where the quarry must be caught with only an artificial, often hand-tied ‘fly’. Beloved of movies, books and outdoors enthusiasts like Yvon Chouinard, in fly fishing the practically weightless lure must be cast before the prey and requires a bit of skill. But it’s not too hard – and our roundup of gear here is perfect to get you started if you’re a beginner, yet authentic, high-quality and unique enough for seasoned fishermen and women to try.
