Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for Big Run Virginia
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. You
could easily get by with a 5 weight most of the time.
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.
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.
The fly reel you use for the 4, 5 or 6 weight line should be light and have good drags,
preferably disc drags,
You would need waders on Big Run. You can wet wade during the warmer months. We
recommend breathable ones.
Felt soles or rubber sole boots would work. We prefer felt.
We would call this optional but is always a good idea on higher water. The stream is fairly
easy to wade in most places except on high water.
We recommend our "Perfect Flies" because they are the best trout flies you can purchase.
The large, holdover trout can be very selective. We have flies that imitate all the aquatic and
terrestrial insects in Big Run. If you haven't already done so, we hope you will give them a try.
