Tonto Creek Arizona Fly Fishing Guide - Gear, Tackle and Flies
Fly Line:
We recommend either a 4, 5 and/or 6 weight fly line for fly fishing Tonto Creek Arizona. You
only need floating fly lines most of the season but sinking tip lines could come in handy
during cold weather.

Fly Rod:
We recommend either a  4 or 5 weight fly rod for the line sizes you use for Tonto Creek. The
4 and 5 weight fly rods should in a medium action and a 8 to 9 foot length. The 6 weight fly
rod should be a medium-fast to fast action for large nymphs and streamers. It should be at
least 9 foot in length.

Fly Reel:
The fly reel used should be for each of the 4, 5 and/or 6 weight lines you use and each have
a very good drag. We prefer disc drags but there are other types that will work as well. It
should be smooth.

Leaders should size 0X to 6X and be from 9 to 12 feet long.

You should have spare tippet in 0X and 6X. Some anglers prefer fluorocarbon but mono is

Waders are necessary for fly fishing Tonto Creek. You can wet wade in the Summer.

Wading Boots:
Wading boots will be needed. We prefer felt soles but the new rubber soles may work fine.

Trout Flies:
Perfect Flies are recommend because they are the best trout flies you can purchase. We
have specific imitations of every food that exist in Tonto Creek. The stockers are not that
selective but the wild rainbows and brown trout are. If you haven't already tried Perfect Flies,
we certainly hope you will. You want be disappointed.
