Default Re: Essential fly fishing gear/accessories.

Since you asked for essentials, I'll try to stick it.

Rod and reel, check. Flies, check.
Tippet spools, 3, 4, 5X at least. You can get away with the majority of trout fishing with these, and rebuild a leader to some extent.
A spare leader, 7' 4X. Can be easily easily extended to 9' 5X or cut back for heavy flies.
Floatant
Split shot

That might be barest bones list of essentials. But there are a few that I consider essential.

Nippers
Hemostat
Sun glasses
Felt wading boots

Further down the list are things that make a day more comfortable.

Hat
Waders
Vest/pack
Wet wipes
Cold beer waiting in the rig.
