Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for the Jackson River
Virginia
Fly Line:
We are recommending a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for all of the fishing on the Jackson
River. 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:
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.

Tippets:
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,

Waders:
You would need waders on the Jackson. 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.

Trout Flies:
We recommend our "Perfect Flies" because they are the most realistic and effective
imitations of the things trout eat that you can purchase. We suggest you have the
flies necessary to match the most available and plentiful aquatic and terrestrial insects
during the time you plan on fishing the Jackson River.
