Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Flies for the Big Green River,

Fly Line:
We are recommending a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for all of the fishing on the Big
Green River. There are those anglers would prefer a 6 weight fly floating fly line for
heavier nymphs and streamers and that is also just fine.

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.

I wouldn't want to wade without waders even if the water was warm enough.

Wading Boots:
Felt soles would be our choice. The new rubber soles may work well. We haven't tried
them there yet.

Wading Staff:
We would call a wading staff optional.

Landing Net:
A landing net would be purely optional.

Trout Flies:
We recommend our "Perfect Flies". We think they are the best trout flies you can
purchase. They have been tested on the wild brown trout of the Big Green by our
customers and have proven very effective there. If you haven't already tried them, we
certainly hope you will. You want be disappointed.
