Hat Creek Fly Fishing Guide - Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies
Hat Creek has some large rainbow trout and brown trout, so you don't want to go too light on

Perfect Flies really prove their net worth fly fishing Hat Creek. We have several California
customers who regularly fish this spring creek that use our flies and for darn good reasons.
They closely imitate all the real aquatic insects, crustaceans and terrestrials that are in the
stream. In short, they catch trout in Hat Creek when other flies don't. They are the most
realistic trout flies you can buy.
