Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies - Current River
Fly Line:
All of the fly fishing can be done with a five or six weight floating, weight forward fly line.
A floating line works just fine for any type of fishing you do on the Current River.

You should have leaders ranging from size 1X for streamers up to 7X for midges. They
should range from seven and one-half feet to twelve feet in length with nine feet being
the most used length.

You should have spare tippet material in the same sizes as the leaders mentioned

Fly Rods:
We recommend a five weight fly rod for the dry fly fishing. It should be a slow to medium
action rod of eight and one half to nine feet in length
. A six weight, nine foot long fly rod
in a medium fast action would work best for larger streamers and nymphs. You need a
rather stiff rod for nymph and streamer fishing.

Fly Reels:
The fly reels you use, 5 or 6 weight, should have good disc drags. You wouldn't want to
hook a large  trout in the Current River on a reel with a lousy drag.

We recommend waders and prefer the breathable type.

Wading Boots:
Felt soles work fine for this stream.

Landing Net:
A landing net would be a purely optional item.

Trout Flies:
We recommend "Perfect Flies" for the Current River. They are not only the most
realistic flies you can buy, they are the most effective ones you can use. We have
imitations of everything trout feed on in the river. Some of our flies have been tested on
the Current River's wild and holdover trout and proven to be effective.
