Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for the Lamprey River in
New Hampshire

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. That will
handle about anything you will catch from the Lamprey River. 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, There are very good size  trout in the Lamprey River. You don't want to
loose a nice trout because of a poor or rough operating drag.

We recommend waders. There are few places you could fish without them. We prefer the
breathable type but you could use neoprene waders during the winter if you preferred.
Wading Boots:
We recommend felt soles for your wading boots. You may want to consider the new rubber
sole boots that help prevent the spread of Didymo but we have not tested them on this

Trout Flies:
We recommend  "Perfect Fly" trout flies. We have a full line of generic and attractor, low
priced by high quality flies that work great for fly fishing the Lamprey River. If you haven't
already tried them, we certainly hope you will. Over ninety percent of our customers return to
purchase more.
