Fly Fishing Gear for Duck Creek (YNP)
Duck Creek and its small tributary streams are primarily meadow streams.

Fly Line:
We recommend a 4 or 5 weight forward, floating fly line for most of the fishing.

You should have leaders ranging from a 71/2 foot tapered leader to a 9 foot length in sizes
from 1X for streamers up to a 6X for midges and tiny flies.

Carry tippet material ranging in sizes from 1x to 6X.

Fly Rod:
Our preferences would be as follows: The fly rod for the 4 weight line should be nine feet
long, in a medium fast to fast action. The 5 weight fly rod should be nine feet long in a
medium to medium fast action.

Fly Reel:
The fly reels should be light as possible. A clicker drag is fine for the brook trout, but you
5should have a good, smooth drag on the reels for the larger trout.

Waders are recommended by not absolutely necessary for Duck Creek and its small
tributaries. We prefer the breathable type.

Wading Boots:
Felt soled wading boots are our choice. We are testing the new rubber sole wading boots
but have no recommendation as of this date.

Landing Net:
A landing net is purely optional but suggested for the large brown trout during the
spawning run.

Trout Flies:
Our "Perfect Flies" are the best choice for Duck Creek.  The smooth currents provide the
fish a good opportunity to closely examine your fly. Flies that imitate the naturals closely
definitely provide an advantage.

We have flies to match every terrestrial and aquatic insect in all stages of life as well as
generic and attractor flies. If you haven't done so already, please give them a try. You will
be glad you did.
