Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for Big Stoney Creek
Fly Line:
You would probably want a 4 or 5 weight fly line for your dry fly fishing on Big Stoney 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 Big Stoney 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 Big Stoney Creek. We prefer the breathable types.   

Wading Boots:
Much of the bottom in sand or rock. You would not want cleats. Felt soles are the best. We
are in the process of testing the new rubber soles out and have no comment about them yet.

Trout Flies:
We recommend our "Perfect Flies". We think they are the best trout flies you can purchase.  
If you haven't already tried them, we certainly hope you will. You want be disappointed.
