    Can anyone recomend an inexpensive rain jacket for use fly fishing?
    I'm on a budget so I would like to stay under $100 the $50 dollar range would be great.

    I bought one out of Cabela's this summer for around $40-50 that I really like, can't remember the name of it off hand. They have a bunch of rain coats and wading rain jackets for sale for under $100. This time of year I'm sure they have some in the "bargin cave."

    I picked up a Hodgman at REI - $100 - has neoprene wrist guards, 2 large vertical front pockets for the big size fly boxes, and the bottom can be folded under for deep wading...also has a very nice hood and wrap around collar for driving rain....

    I have used the cabelas dry plus for two seasons now, and would give it two thumbs up. I think its about $100, but worth it. I have yet to get wet in it. Plus its well made for the fisherman. :THUMBSUP
