Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for the Fraser River
We recommend either a 5 or 6 weight floating fly line for most all of the fishing. You may
want a sinking tip line for streamers and as well as a sinking line.
We recommend both the 5 weight and six weight fly rods have a moderately fast to fast
action. We think the best length is nine feet.
The fly reel used for the 5 or 6 weight lines should have very good drags. We prefer disc
drags but there are other types that will work as well.
Leaders should be a size 0X to 6X and range from 7 1/2 to 12 feet in length. Use shorter
leaders for streamer fishing
You should have spare tippet in 0X to 6X.
Waders are needed for fly fishing the Fraser River. We prefer the breathable type. You
may want to use neoprene waders during the winter.
Wading boots should be felt soles in our opinion.
A landing net is strictly optional but we do recommend using one. You don't want to lose
one of the Fraser River's large brown trout because you didn't carry one.
Perfect Flies have proven to be effective on the Fraser River. We have several customers
who have used them on this stream. They closely imitate all the real aquatic insects,
crustaceans and terrestrials that are 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.
