Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies - Flint Creek Montana
A 5 weight fly line would deliver most flies that are ideal for most of the fly fishing. If you fish
streamers and larger nymphs, then you should consider using a 6 weight, floating fly line.
For the five weight line, we would recommend a 5 weight, eight and one-half to nine foot,
medium fast to fast action fly rod. The rod for the 6 weight line should be from eight and a half
to nine foot long, in a medium fast to fast action. A slightly heavier tip comes in handy for larger
The reel for the 4 weight line isn't all that important as long as it is light and holds the line. The
reel for the 5 and 6 weight lines should have a good drag. It should be smooth and adjust to
You should probably use at least an 8 foot leader anywhere you fish Flint Creek. We suggest
you have them in sizes ranging from a 1X for streamers, up to 7X for Midges.
You should have extra tippet material in sizes ranging from 1X to 7X.
Waders are needed for fly fishing Flint Creek.. We prefer the breathable type but neoprene
waders may be preferred during cold weather.
Felt soles would be our choice for wading boots. The new rubber soles may work well. We
haven't tried them there yet.
A wading staff isn't usually needed but it is an option some may want to take advantage of.
A landing net would be recommended but not necessary.
We recommend "Perfect Fly" Trout Flies. We have specific imitations of every important insect
that hatches on Flint Creek. Our flies are the most realistic imitations you can buy as well as
the most effective imitations you can obtain. If you haven't already tried them, we certainly
hope you do.
