Fly Fishing Gear and Trout Flies for the Yellow Breeches Creek

Fly Line:
We are recommending a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for all of the fishing. There are some
anglers that prefer a 6 weight fly floating fly line for heavier nymphs and streamers.

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 above.

Fly Rods:
We suggest either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod for each line size you choose to fish. That will
handle about anything you will catch from the Yellow Breeches. 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, There are some 18 inch brown trout in the Yellow Breeches. You
don't want to loose a nice brown trout because of a poor or rough operating drag.

You will need waders. We prefer the breathable type.

Wading Boots:
We recommend felt soles for your wading boots.

Trout Flies:
As always we recommend "Perfect Fly" trout flies. We suggest you look at our hatch chart
and select the flies for the particular time of year you plan on fishing. You should also have
a good selection of streamers for the brown trout. The flies you have for the aquatic insects
should vary depending on the time of the year you are fishing. There is no one particular
insect that is more important than any other one throughout the season. The brown trout
can become selective on certain insect hatches.
