Rod   

Temple Fork (tforods.com) Ross (jprossflyrods.com) and Sage (sageflyfish.com) are all solid choices for beginners and experienced fly fishers alike. Try a five-weight, 8.5 or 9-foot rod as a good all-around rod.

Waders

Breathable waders provide more comfort for year-around use; neoprene gets mighty hot in the summer. Look for Simms models to provide comfort and reliability in all types of weather. simmsfishing.com

Sunglasses

Sometimes a forgotten item, polarized sunglasses can make a great deal of difference in the success and comfort of a trout fishing adventure. Choose Cocoons,  designed to go directly over your prescription eyeglasses. The copper lens models fit all weather conditions, from bright sunlight to cloudy days. cocoonseyewear.com

Reel

Make sure your reel can handle the big ones that come along. The Orvis Battenkill Disk (orvis.com) reel is a good choice because of its durability, performance, mid-arbor design and price.
