Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies - Honey Creek Pennsylvania
We are recommending a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for all of the fishing on Honey Creek.
Some anglers would prefer a 6 weight fly floating fly line for heavier nymphs and streamers.
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.
We suggest either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod for each line size you choose to fish. That will
handle about anything you will catch from Honey Creek. It should have a medium fast to fast
action and be nine feet in length.
The fly reel you use for the 4, 5 or 6 weight line should be light and have good drags,
preferably disc drags, Honey Creek has some very nice size trout and you don't want to loose
a nice trout because of a poor or rough operating drag.
I wouldn't want to wade without waders even if the water was warm enough.
Felt soles would be our choice. The new rubber soles may work well. We haven't tried them
The water is not really bad enough for us to say a wading staff should be used. We would call
A landing net would be purely optional.
We recommend our "Perfect Flies" for fly fishing Honey Creek. Thats not only because we sell
them, its also because we think they are the best flies you can purchase. They have been
tested in the spring creeks of Pennsylvania. They are not only the most realistic flies you can
buy, they are the most effective ones you can use. If you haven't done so already, we hope
you will give them a try. They have proven effective on spring creeks nation-wide. You will be
glad you did.
