Fly Fishing Gear for Joseph Creek Montana
This is the perfect stream to fish as light of a fly line as you would like to use. A one weight
would work fine in Joseph Creek.
We suggest either a 4weight or lighter, floating fly line for all of the fly-fishing.
The four weight rod should be between eight and nine feet in length with a medium
action. You may want to use a shorter length but we like the length for making roll cast.
The reel for the rod isn't important as long as it is light. There would be nothing wrong with
a clicker drag.
You should use at least a 9 foot leader. You should have them in sizes ranging from 4X for
nymphs, up to 7X for small dry flies.
You should carry extra tippet material in sizes ranging from 4X to 7X.
You should not wade unless it is necessary to get the fly to places the trout may be
feeding or hiding. We do suggest waders for this stream because there are many places
you will need them.
Felt soles would be our first choice. If you are concerned about the spread of Didymo, the
new rubber soles may be your choice. This may help prevent spreading this stuff to this
beautiful little stream called Joseph Creek.
We always recommend our "Perfect Fly" Trout Flies. Our mayfly, caddisfly and stonefly
imitations are the most realistic imitations commercially available.
