Fly Fishing Gear and Trout Flies for Big Bushkill Creek
We suggest either a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for most of the fly-fishing. You
may want to use a 6 weight line for heavy nymphs and streamers.
You should have a fly rod for each of the above line sizes. The rods should be nine
feet in length. We suggest either a medium fast or fast action.
The reel for either of the three rods should be the right size to hold the fly line and
backing, light and have a good drag.
Leaders should be available in lengths ranging from seven and one-half to nine
feet. You should have them in sizes ranging from 0X for streamers, up to 6X for
small dry flies.
Make sure you have extra tippet material in sizes ranging from 0X to 6X.
Waders would be required. There would only be few places you could fish from the
Felt soles would be our first choice. Rubber soles may also work well.
We always recommend "Perfect Fly" Trout Flies. We have specific imitations of all
the insects, crustaceans and other things that fish feed on in Bushkill Creek. We
hope you give them a try.
