Fly Fishing Gear for the Teton River Idaho
You need gear ranging from light line for the brook trout, to heavier line for streamers and
nymphs fly fishing the Teton River in Idaho. You could get by with a five weight outfit for
just about everything if you needed to.

Fly Line:
We recommend a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for most of the fishing on Teton River..
Some anglers may prefer to use a 6 weight fly floating fly line for heavier nymphs and

Leaders should range in sizes from a 0X for streamers up to a 6X for midges and small dry
flies. Lengths ranging from nine feet up to twelve feet in length are suggested.

Extra tippet material ranging from 0X to 6X should be available for the leaders we list

Fly Rods:
We suggest either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod for each line size you choose to fish.  It should
have a medium fast to fast action and be nine feet in length.

Fly Reels:
The fly reel you use for the 4, 5 or 6 weight line should be light and have good drags,  
preferably disc drags.

You should have waders for fly fishing Teton River. We prefer the breathable type.

Wading Boots:
Felt soles would be our choice. The new rubber soles may work well.

Wading Staff:
A wading staff may be needed under higher water conditions.

Landing Net:
A landing net would be purely optional.

Trout Flies:
Our "Perfect Flies" are the best ones you could possibly use for the Teton River. We have
flies to match every terrestrial and aquatic insect in all stages of life. If you haven't done so
already, please give them a try. You will be glad you did. We have specific imitations of
