Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies For the Upper
Cattahoochee River

Fly Line:
We recommend either a 4, 5 and 6 weight fly lines for the Upper Chattahoochee River in
Georgia. You only need a floating fly line.

Fly Rod:
We recommend either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod for the respective line size you choose to
use. The fly rods should bi a medium fast to fast action. We prefer a nine foot length.

Fly Reel:
The fly reel used should be for each of the 4, 5 and 6 weight lines you use and each have a
very good drag. We prefer disc drags but there are other types that will work as well. It
should be smooth.

Leaders:
Leaders should size 0X to 6X and be from 7 and a half to 9 feet long. Use shorter leaders for
streamers.

Tippet:
You should have spare tippet in 0X and 6X.

Waders:
Waders are preferred for fly fishing the Upper Chattahoochee River. We prefer the
breathable type.

Wading Boots:
Wading boots will be needed. Felt soles work best but you may want to consider the new
rubber soles.

Landing Net:
A landing net would be preferred by most anglers but not absolutely necessary.

Trout Flies:
Perfect Flies are recommend because they are the best trout flies you can purchase. We
have specific imitations of every food that exist in the Chattahoochee River. If you haven't
already tried Perfect Flies, we certainly hope you will give them a try. You will find they are
very effective on the wild trout in this stream.
