Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for Fires Creek North
Fly Line:
You would probably want a 4 or 5 weight fly line for fly fishing Fires Creek. 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 and 6 weight lines that is nine feet in length, in a medium
to medium fast action.

Fly Reel:
The reel for the four, five or six weight rods should have a decent drag. It should be smooth.
A disc drag that adjust in fine increments would be best.

You should probably be using at least a 7 and half foot leader anywhere you fish Fires
Creek. 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.

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

Waders are necessary for Fires Creek unless the water is warm enough for you to wet wade.

Wading Boots:
Felt soles provide the best traction for this type of stream.. We are testing the new rubber
soles and have no comment about them yet.

Trout Flies:
We recommend "Perfect Flies". They are not only the most realistic trout flies you can
purchase, they are the most effective at catching trout.  If you haven't already tried them, we
certainly hope you will. You want be disappointed.
