Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies - Croton River New York

Fly Line:
The fly line we recommend for fly fishing the Croton River is a 4 or 5 weight floating line. Many
prefer a 6 weight fly line for fishing nymphs and streamers.

Fly Rod:
The fly rod should be a 4, 5 or 6 weight, respective to the line size, in a medium to medium fast
action. We prefer a length of 9 feet.  

Leader for trout should be tapered and range from seven and a half to twelve feet long. They
should range from a 0X up to a 6X size.

You want to carry plenty of extra tippet material ranging in sizes from 0X up to 6X.

Waders are necessary for fly fishing the Croton River. We prefer the breathable type.

Wading Boots:
Wading boots can currently have either felt or rubber soles.

Landing Net:
A landing net is purely optional but recommended. There's some large trout in this stream. .

We recommend "Perfect Fly" Trout Flies. We have a huge selection in a wide price range. The
trout flies are not only as realistic as you will find on the commercial market, they are the most
effective at catching trout. Our imitations of specific species of mayfly nymphs emergers, duns
and spinners are very effective.
