Take advantage of drizzly days on the water with Cabela's Storm Proof Tackle Bag ($33). Its tarpaulin waterproof barrier and tough plastic base ensure that your dry flies stay dry. cabelas.com

Kaenon uses injection molding to create polarized lenses that cut glare, sans the silvery distortion that leaves you reaching for the Tylenol. The Kurb frame ($160) wraps around your head to protect your eyes from wind and water. kaenon.com

Ladies: You wouldn't wear a man's shorts. So why wear his PFD? The foam in the Stohlquist Bettie ($125) is specially shaped to wrap around your curves, not crush them. A cinch at the waist prevents ride-up syndrome. stohlquist.com

The quick-drying fabric of the Esbegirl Femme capris ($40) makes for an easy transition from boat to car. The cargo pockets and leg cinches are practical and hip. stohlquist.com

If you don't mind getting your feet wet but don't like them to stay that way, try the Adidas Hellbender ($90). The mesh upper lets water in; a drain in the sole quickly sends it packing. adidas.com

6

Keep your dry fly skimming the water with Cortland 555 Series lines ($59). Three lines in the series feature a hollow core and multiple coatings, resulting in lines that lie above the rest. cortlandline.com
