Blue River Arizona Fly Fishing Guide - Gear, Tackle and Flies
Fly Line:
We recommend either a 3, 4 or 5 weight fly line for the Blue River in Arizona. You only need
floating lines.

Leaders should range in sizes from a 0X for streamers up to a 6X for midges and small dry
flies. Lengths ranging from seven and one-half feet up to 9 feet are suggested.

We suggest that you have extra tippet material in sizes ranging from 0X to 6X.

Fly Rods:
We think the fly rods should have a moderately fast to fast action and be nine feet in length.

Fly Reels:
The fly reels for the 4, 5 and 6 weight fly lines should be light and have a good smooth
drags. We think disc drags are the best.  

Waders are necessary for fly fishing the Blue River.

Wading Boots:
We recommend felt soles for your wading boots.

Wading Staff:
A wading staff would be purely optional.

Landing Net:
A landing net is another optional item but one may come in very handy..

Trout Flies:
Perfect Flies are recommend because they are the best trout flies you can purchase. We
have specific imitations of every item of trout food that exist in the Blue River. If you haven't
already tried Perfect Flies, we certainly hope you will. You want be disappointed.
