Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for the Chattooga River
North Carolina

Fly Line:
You would probably want a 4 or 5 weight fly line for your dry fly fishing on Chattooga 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, 5 or 6 weight lines if you choose to use them. They should
have moderately fast to fast actions and be nine feet in length.

Fly Reel:
The reels for the four, five and six weight rods should have decent drags. They should be
smooth. A disc drag that adjust in fine increments would be best.

Leaders:
You should probably be using at least a 7 and half foot leader anywhere you fish the
Chattooga River. There are situation where you would want to go up to 9 feet. I would
suggest having them in sizes ranging from 1X for streamers, up to 6X for small dry flies and
midges, in both the 7 and half and 9 foot lengths.

Tippet:
You should have extra tippet in sizes ranging from 1X to 6X.

Waders:
Waders are necessary for the Chatooga River unless the water is warm enough for you to
wet wade.  

Wading Boots:
Much of the bottom in either gravel, sand or rock. You would not want cleats. Felt soles are
the best. We are 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.
They have been tested in Chattooga River by our customers and have proven very effective
there. If you haven't already tried them, we certainly hope you will. You want be
disappointed. We also have a full line of generic and attractor flies at very low prices for very
high quality flies. .
