Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies - Fall River California
The Fall River has some very large trout.  You don't want to hook a large one on
too light of tackle. Some anglers use 4 weight lines and rods and that is just fine;
however, we just do not want to recommend it and have you blame us for losing a
trophy rainbow.

Fly Line:
We recommend either a 5 or 6 weight floating fly line for rainbow and brown trout
fishing.

Fly Rod:
We recommend a 5 weight fly rod in a medium to medium-fast action that is 9 feet
in length. The 6 weight fly rod should be a medium fast to fast action rod with a
slightly stiffer tip for nymph fishing and 9 feet in length.

Fly Reel:
The fly reel used should be for either the 5 or 6 weight line should have a very
good drag. We prefer disc drags but there are other types that will work as well.

Leaders:
Leaders should be a size 0X to 6X and range from 7 1/2 to 12 feet in length. Long
leaders are often required.

Tippet:
You should have spare tippet in 0X to 6X. Some anglers prefer fluorocarbon for
nymphs but mono is fine.

Waders:
Waders are not needed.

Wading Boots:
Wading boots are not needed.

Landing Net:
A landing net is strictly optional but we do recommend using one. You may hook a
large  trout and really regret not having one.

Trout Flies:
Perfect Flies have proven to be very effective on the Fall River. We have several
California customers who regularly use our flies on this stream. They closely
imitate all the real aquatic insects, crustaceans and terrestrials that are found on
and in the stream. We have specific imitations of all the insects in all stages of life.
If you haven't already tried them, we certainly hope you will. We are confident you
will find them highly effective.
