Etowah River - Gear, Tackle and Flies

Fly Line:
We recommend a 4 weight, floating line for those that enjoy light tackle. We recommend a 5
weight, floating fly line for dry flies and small nymphs for the major part of the river. Many
anglers may prefer a 6 weight floating fly line for heavier nymphs and streamers. You may
also want a sinking tip line for streamers in the 6 weight line.

Leaders should range in sizes from a 0X for streamers up to a 6X for midges and small dry
flies. Lengths ranging from seven and one-half feet up to 12 feet are suggested.

We suggest that you have extra tippet material in sizes ranging from 0X to 6X.

Fly Rods:
We think the fly rods should have a moderately fast to fast action and be nine feet in length.

Fly Reels:
The fly reels for the 4, 5 and 6 weight fly lines should be light and have a good smooth
drags. We think disc drags are the best.  

There are a few areas you will be able to fish without waders but you will need them most

Wading Boots:
We recommend felt soles for your wading boots.

Wading Staff:
A wading staff would be purely optional.

Landing Net:
A landing net is another optional item.

Trout Flies:
Perfect Flies are recommend because they are the best trout flies you can purchase. We
have specific imitations of every food that exist in the Etowah River. If you haven't already
tried Perfect Flies, we certainly hope you will give them a try. You will find they are very
effective on the wild trout in this stream. Our Perfect Fly "Shad" streamer is an excellent
choice for the striped bass.
