Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for the Casselman River

Fly Line:
Most of the fish you will catch will be either rainbow or brown trout in the Catch and Release
section. We recommend a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for dry flies and lighter nymphs and a
6 weight fly floating fly line for heavier nymphs and streamers.

Your leaders should range in sizes from a 0X for streamers up to a 6X for midges and small
dry flies. You should carry them in lengths ranging from seven and one-half feet, up to 12
feet in length. Nine foot would probably be the most used length.

You should have extra tippet material ranging from 0X to 6X.

Fly Rods:
The rods for the 4, 5 or 6 weight lines should be a medium fast to fast action rod. We think
nine foot is the best length.

Fly Reels:
The reels for the 4, 5 and 6 weight lines should have a good drag, preferably a disc drag.
You don't want to loose a nice brown trout because of a poor or rough operating drag.

Waders are necessary for fly fishing the Casselman River.

Wading Boots:
Felt sole wading shoes are illegal in Maryland and you need to use caution as to which
wading boots you trust.

Trout Flies:
We recommend Perfect Fly trout flies. We have imitations of all the major insects,
crustaceans, sculpin and baitfish that exist in the Casselman River. The holdover trout and
the trout that has been in the stream for a couple of months or longer can be rather picky.
They get use to eating the natural insects, sculpin and baitfish in the stream. We hope you
will give our Perfect Flies an opportunity to work for you. .
