According to the Fish and Wildlife Service, there are now close to 500,000 women that like to go fly fishing, let alone fish in general. That means when numbers start getting that large, changes are coming to the fishing fashion waters.
While there is a lot of regular summer fashion that lends itself easily to fishing, when it comes to fly fishing, the ladies are similar to their male counterparts: they want their gear to be practical while looking good. Well, at least the guys want it practical.
Fishing vests in particular are one of the elements to having a successful fly fishing trip, and it's no different for the ladies.
I've included a few photos of those that do the job well.
Some of the companies that sell them online are Girl on the Fly (I love that name), L.L.Bean, Patagonia, and Bob Marriott's Fly Fishing Store.
