Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for Bullpasture River
Virginia
Fly Line:
You would probably want a 4 or 5 weight fly line for your dry fly fishing on the Bullpasture
River You could get by using a 5 weight, floating fly line for everything. Many anglers that
fish heavy nymphs and streamers would want a 6 weight fly line but it would not be
absolutely necessary.

Fly Rod:
I would suggest a rod for the 4 or 5 weight line and another for the 6 weight line if you
choose to use it. The four or five weight rod should be between eight and nine feet in length,
a medium fast action would work best in our opinion.

If you choose to fish heavier nymphs and streamers on a six weight line then you would
probably want a fly rod that is a little on the stiff side.  It should be nine feet in a  medium fast
action.

Fly Reel:
The reel for the four or the five weight rod should have a decent drag. It should be smooth.
A disc drag that adjust in fine increments would be best. The reel for the six weight line
should fit the same description.

Leaders:
Leaders should vary 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 depending on
the type of water and fly you use.

Tippets:
Extra tippet material ranging from 0X to 6X should be available for the leaders we list above.

Waders:
Waders are necessary for the Bullpasture River. We prefer the breathable types.   

Wading Boots:
Much of the bottom in sand and gravel. Felt soles are the best but cleats would work. We
are in the process of testing the new rubber soles out and have no comment about them yet.

Trout Flies:
We recommend our "Perfect Flies". We think they are the best trout flies you can purchase.  
If you haven't already tried them, we certainly hope you will. You want be disappointed. You
may also notice that we sell standard, generic and attractor flies at a very low price.
