Fly Fishing Gear for Letort Spring Run, Pennsylvania
This stream has some big brown trout in it, so you don't want to fish with too light of a fly rod
and tippet. Although light tackle is fun to fish we don't suggest you go to light.
We suggest either a 4 or 5 weight fly line for most of the fly-fishing. Most all of your fishing is
done using small flies. You will also be using a lot of scud and cressbug (sowbug) imitations.
We recommend a 6 weight line for streamers.
You should have a fly rod for each of the above line sizes. The four, five and six weight rods
should be nine feet in length. A medium fast to fast action would be our suggestion.
The reel for either of the three rods should have a good drag. You don't want to hang a large
trout and loose it because of a lousy drag.
You should use at least a 7 12 foot leader anywhere and anytime on the Letort. A twelve foot
length and even longer may be wise in some situations. You should have them in sizes ranging
from 0X for streamers, up to 6X for small dry flies.
Carry extra tippet material in sizes ranging from 0X to 6X.
You should not wade unless it is necessary to get the fly to places the trout may be feeding or
hiding. However, you do suggest you wear them.
Felt soles would be our first choice. The new rubber soles may work well. We haven't tried
them there yet.
We always recommend "Perfect Fly" Trout Flies. Our scud and sowbug imitations are the most
realistic imitations commercially available. We have specific imitations of all the major insects
that exist in Letort Spring run . We hope you give them a try.
