Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for Little Stony Creek
Fly Line:
I would probably want a 4 weight fly line for your dry fly fishing on Little Stony Creek. You
could get by using a 5 weight, floating fly line for everything. Many anglers that fish heavy
nymphs and streamers would want a 6 weight fly line but it would not be absolutely

Fly Rod:
I would suggest a rod for the 4 or 5 weight line and another for the 6 weight line if you
choose to use it. The four or five weight rod should be between eight and nine feet in length,
a medium to medium fast action would work best in our opinion.

If you choose to fish heavier nymphs and streamers on a six weight line then you would
probably want a fly rod that is a little on the stiff side.  It should be nine feet in a medium to a
medium fast action.

Fly Reel:
The reel for the four or the five weight rod should have a decent drag. It should be smooth.
A disc drag that adjust in fine increments would be best. The reel for the six weight line
should fit the same description.

We recommend at least a 7 and half foot leader anywhere you fish Little Stony Creek. There
are situation where you would want to go up to 9 feet. I would suggest having them in sizes
ranging from 2X for streamers, up to 7X for small dry flies and midges, in both the 7 and half
and 9 foot lengths.

You should have extra tippet in sizes ranging from 2X to 7X.

Waders are necessary for Little Stony Creek but you can wet wade during warm weather.
We prefer the breathable types of waders.   

Wading Boots:
Much of the bottom in sand or rock, mostly rock. You would not want cleats. Felt soles are
the best.

Trout Flies:
We recommend  "Perfect Flies". We think they are the best trout flies you can purchase. We
have imitations of all the aquatic and terrestrial insects found on Little Stony Creek.  If you
haven't already tried them, we certainly hope you will. You want be disappointed.
