Fly Fishing Guide, Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies - Fox River Michigan
We recommend either a 4 or 5 weight floating line for the trout. Some anglers may prefer to
use a 6 weight fly line for their nymphs and streamer fishing. Some of the brook trout in the
Fox River and the East Branch Fox River are quite large.
We recommend a rod for the 4, 5 or 6 weight line that is nine feet in length in a medium fast to
The reel for the four, five or six weight rod should have a decent drag. It should be smooth. A
disc drag that adjust in fine increments would be best.
You should use leaders from 71/2 foot to 12 foot in length for the Fox River. I suggest
having them in sizes ranging from 0X for streamers, up to 6X for small dry flies and midges, in
the various lengths.
You should have extra tippet in sizes ranging from 0X to 6X.
Waders are necessary for the Fox River. We prefer the breathable type. You may want
neoprene waders during cold weather.
Much of the bottom is sand. We think felt soles are the best.
A landing net is purely optional.
We always recommend "Perfect Fly" Trout Flies. We have specific imitations of every important
insect that hatches on the Fox River. Our flies are the most realistic and most effective
imitations you can buy. If you haven't already done so, we hope you give them an opportunity
to perform for you. You'll be glad you did.
