Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Flies for the Ammonoosuc River in
New Hampshire

Fly Line:
We recommend either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly line for the trout in the Ammonoosuc River. You
mostly only need floating lines. You will want a sinking line and/or sinking tip lines for
streamer fishing. Line sizes for landlocked Atlantic salmon should range from 6 to 8 weight

Fly Rod:
We recommend either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod for each line size you choose to use for trout.
The fly rods should in a med-fast to fast action and a 9 foot length. For salmon, a 6 to 8
weight fly rod in a medium fast to fast action and nine foot length.

Fly Reel:
The fly reels used should be for each of the different lines you use and each should have a
very good drag. We prefer disc drags but there are other types that will work as well. It should
be smooth.

Leaders for trout should size 0X to 6X and be from 71/2 to 12 feet long. You may want some
short leaders of 3 or 4 feet for streamers. Leaders for salmon should be 9 feet for single
handed rods up to 16 feet for Spey rods. They should range from 0 to 2X in size.

You should have spare tippet in 0X and 6X for trout and salmon.

You would need waders just about anywhere you fish the Ammonoosuc River. We
recommend breathable ones.

Wading Boots:
Felt soles or either the new rubber sole boots would work best.

Wading Staff:
We would call this optional but is always a good idea. The stream is fairly easy to wade in
most places.

We recommend  our "Perfect Flies" because they are the best trout flies you can purchase.
We have specific imitations of all the aquatic and terrestrial insects in the Ammonoosuc River.
Our streamers are very effective on large brown trout. If you haven't already done so, we
hope you will give them a try.
