Gear For Your Fishing Trip

Maine Fishing Trip Planner

A Trip to Weatherby’s in the wilds of Maine is quite an undertaking for most folks. Bringing the proper gear and clothing is crucial to enjoying your vacation, no matter where it may be. Here you will find personal gear lists based on the season. Weather changes quickly in Maine and you are better off bringing extra warm clothes and not needing them, than not having them to put on. Rain gear is a must, both jacket and pants! For your convenience, we offer both spinning rods and fly rods and waders at no charge.  Many of our guests will ship fishing equipment and gear ahead of time via UPS or Fed Ex. This is a great way to travel light through the airports and minimizes the risk of losing luggage with the airlines.
