Flies for a trip.

Recommended Posts

While I am not new to fly fishing, I am new to fly fishing for trout.

 

I have found several streams within a days drive of me and am planning on going this may, june and july.

The article I found talks about tight fishing on some of them.

 

I have a 9' six weight rod, and will soon have a new 7'6" 4wt. (Planning on taking the 4wt.)

 

There are rainbow, brook, and brown trout in most of them and I plan on hiking in. (Eastern Ky)

 

Are there any certain flies that I should pack, leaders, tippet, ... anything I should take trout fishing?

 

Thanks.

Black zebra midge

Red flash midge

Primrose and Pearl midge for a bright sunny day

 

Prince Nymph

Griffiths Gnat

copper johns

y2ks

egg patterns

 

Olive, black and brown woollie buggers

 

Red, Chartruse and hot pink san juan worms

 

That would about cover anything I would want to hike in with.

 

Have a great trip and catch lots!

 

PS. 9 ft 5-7X leaders and the same for tippet should be all you need. Some strike indicators.

GOOGLE for hatch charts in the particular area you are going to be fishing, then tie or buy flies accordingly
