Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies - Shoshone River
Fly Line:
Most anglers would prefer a 5 weight fly line and some even a 6 weight line for
nymphing. There is nothing wrong with using a 4 weight fly line if you want to go on the
lighter side.

Your leaders should range in sizes from a 0X for small streamers up to a 6X for small
dry flies. You should carry them in lengths ranging from seven and one-half feet, up to
12 feet in length.

You should have extra tippet material ranging from 3X to 6X.

Fly Rods:
We recommend a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod nine feet in length. Most anglers would prefer
a four piece rod so that it will break down into a short length for hiking.

Fly Reels:
The fly reel you use for the 4, 5 or 6 weight lines should be light but that is about the
only requirement.

You can get by with out waders if you fish from the banks but it wouldn't be the most
desirable situation. We recommend carrying waders.

Wading Boots:
We recommend felt soles for your wading boots. You may want to consider the new
rubber sole boots.

Wading Staff:
A wading staff would be purely optional. You should consider using one during high
water or in stronger currents that are suitable for wading.

Landing Net:
A landing net is another optional item but we do recommend using one.

Trout Flies:
We recommend "Perfect Fly" trout flies. If you haven't already done so, you should give
"Perfect Flies" a try. They are the most realistic and effective trout flies you can
purchase. They have proven successful on the Shoshone River wild brown trout as well
as its other species.
