Fly Fishing Gear and Trout Flies for Ridley Creek Pennsylvania

Fly Line:
If you used a 5 weight floating fly line, you could fish anytime and just about anyway you
wanted to on this small creek. There are anglers that prefer something lighter for dry fly
fishing. In that case you may want a 4 weight, floating fly line. Some anglers would prefer a 6
weight fly line for fishing larger nymphs and streamers.

Fly Rod:
Choose a fly rod that is nine feet long in a medium to medium fast action. That will allow you
to fish small nymphs as well as dry flies and streamers.

Fly Reels:
We like the lighter ones with good drags. You don't want to hook a nice size brown trout and
lose it because of a lousy drag.

Have some leaders ranging from 0X to 6X and lengths from seven and one-half to twelve feet.

Have some extra tippet material ranging from 0X to 6X.

We think waders are a must because there are many areas trees prevent fishing from the
banks. Wading boots should have felt or the new rubber type soles if you prefer them.

Trout Flies:
We prefer "Perfect Fly" imitations. We recommend you have imitation for all stages of life for
those insects shown in the hatch section of this site. They are simi-realistic flies that work
much better in spring creeks than any flies. If you haven't already tried them, we certainly
hope you will. You will be glad you did.
