Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for Bushkill Creek
Pennsylvania

Fly Line:
We suggest either a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for most of the fly-fishing. You
may want to use a 6 weight line for heavy nymphs and streamers.

Fly Rod:
You should have a fly rod for each of the above line sizes. The rods should be
nine feet in length. We suggest either a medium fast or fast action.

Fly Reel:
The reel for either of the three rods should be the right size to hold the fly line
and backing, light and have a good drag.

Leaders:
Leaders should be available in lengths ranging from seven and one-half to nine
feet. You should have them in sizes ranging from 0X for streamers, up to 6X for
small dry flies.

Tippet:
Make sure you have extra tippet material in sizes ranging from 0X to 6X.

Waders:
Waders would be required. There would only be few places you could fish from
the  banks effectively.

Wading Boots:
Felt soles would be our first choice. The new rubber soles may also work well.

Flies:
We always recommend "Perfect Fly" Trout Flies. We have specific imitations of
all the insects, crustaceans and other things that fish feed on in Bushkill Creek.
We hope you give
them a try.
