Fly Fishing Gear and Trout Flies for Big Springs Creek
This stream has some huge trout in it, so you don't want to fish with too light of a fly rod and
tippet. It is not unusual to see trout caught over twenty inches and even larger.

done using small flies or imitations of scuds and cressbugs. You may want to use a 6 weight
line for streamers.

You should probably be using at least a 7 1/2 foot leader anywhere you fish on Big Springs
Creek. There are plenty of situation where you would want to go up to 12 feet. You should
have them in sizes ranging from 0X for streamers, up to 6X for small dry flies.
Carry extra tippet material in sizes ranging from 0X to 6X.
Although you should do as little wading as possible, I would suggest waders.
Felt soles would be our choice.
