Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies - Currant Creek Utah
Currant Creek has some large brown trout. You don't want to use too light of tackle. The
ideal fly line size would probably be a 5 weight, floating fly line. Some anglers would prefer
something heavier for large nymphs, and streamers. A 6 weight fly line would deliver most
of the streamers and heavy nymphs better than the 5 weight.
You would want a fly rod to handle each of the above line sizes. The five weight rod would
be ideal at a length of about eight and a half to nine feet. We recommend a nine foot
length. We think a medium to medium fast action would be best for this one.
The six weight rod should be a little stiffer to handle larger nymphs and streamers. We
would say it should be nine feet in length in a medium fast to fast action.
The reels for the 5 or 6 weight lines should have good drags. They should be smooth and
adjust to fine increments.
You should be using at least a seven foot leader anywhere on Currant Creek. There are
cases where you may want a 12 foot leader. The only exception would be when you are
fishing streamers. You may want a shorter leader in that case. Make sure you have leaders
in sizes ranging from 2X for streamers, up to 6X for small flies and midges.
You should also have plenty of extra tippet in sizes ranging from 2X to 6X.
Waders are necessary most of the time. You can fish from the banks in only a few areas. j
We prefer the breathable type but you may need neoprene waders if you are fishing during
Felt soles would be our choice. The new rubber soles may work well.
You probably shouldn't be fishing Currant Creek without a landing net. Losing a large
brown trout within reach would be heart breaking.
We recommend "Perfect Fly" trout flies. We have specific imitations of every important
insect that exist in Currant Creek, in each stage of its life that's applicable to fishing. The
wild brown trout can be very selective. We have regular customers who fish Currant Creek
using our flies. If you haven't already done so, we hope you will give them an opportunity to
work for you.
