Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for East Hawksbill Creek

Fly Line:
We are recommending a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for all of the fishing. There are some
anglers that prefer a 6 weight fly floating fly line for heavier nymphs and streamers. You
could easily get by with a 5 weight most of the time.

Leaders should range in sizes from a 0X for streamers up to a 6X for midges and small dry
flies. Lengths ranging from nine feet up to twelve feet in length are suggested.

Extra tippet material ranging from 0X to 6X should be available for the leaders we list above.

Fly Rods:
We suggest either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod for each line size you choose to fish. It should
have a medium fast to fast action and be nine feet in length.

Fly Reels:
The fly reel you use for the 4, 5 or 6 weight line should be light and have good drags,  
preferably disc drags,

You would need waders on the East Hawksbill. You can wet wade during the warmer months.
We recommend breathable ones.

Wading Boots:
Felt soles or rubber sole boots would work. We prefer felt.

Wading Staff:
We would call this optional but is always a good idea on higher water. The stream is fairly
easy to wade in most places except on high water.

We recommend  "Perfect Fly" Trout Flies. Our mayfly, caddisfly and stonefly imitations are
the most realistic imitations commercially available. We also have low priced, but very high
quality standard generic and attractor trout flies. Please give them a try the next time you
fish East Hawksbill Creek or any other stream in Shenandoah National Park.
