Gear Guide: Fishing on the Fly

When you spend all day on the boat, under the hot sun, searching for the perfect catch, you need to be comfortable and protected.

That’s why we’ve put together a list of our favorite gear to help you stay cool, dry, and protected while you’re spending long hours on the open water. Why is this gear our favorite? Because it’s been #TestedTough on and off the boat in Belize, under the unrelenting rays of the summer sun.

See for yourself, we sent our friends at Badfish down to Belize to fish the flats and open waters. They spent long, hot days on the boat searching for tarpon and permit…or whatever they could catch.

Check out their adventure here and start planning your next trip to Belize:
