Conasauga River - Gear, Tackle and Flies
We recommend either a 4, 5 and 6 weight fly lines for the Conasauga River in Georgia. You
only need a floating fly line. Since you must hike to its waters, we recommend only one rod.
We recommend a rod for the 4, 5 or 6 weight line that is nine feet in length in a medium fast
to fast action.
The reel for the four, five or six weight rod should have a decent drag. It should be smooth.
A disc drag that adjust in fine increments would be best.
You should use leaders from 71/2 foot to 12 foot in length for Conasauga River. I suggest
having them in sizes ranging from 0X for streamers, up to 6X for small dry flies and midges,
in the various lengths.
You should have extra tippet in sizes ranging from 0X to 6X.
Waders are necessary for Conasauga River. We prefer the breathable type. You may want
neoprene waders during cold weather. You can wet wade during the summer.
Much of the bottom in either gravel, sand or rock. You would not want cleats. Felt soles are
A landing net is purely optional.
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 Conasauga 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.
