Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for Fly Fishing Little Lehigh Creek
The Little Lehigh has some big brown trout in it. Although light gear is fun to use, you don't
want to lose the fish of a life time because you used gear that was just too light.
We suggest either a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for most of the fly-fishing. Most all of your
fishing is done using small flies. You may want a 6 weight line for larger nymphs and
The fly rods should be nine feet in length with a medium fast to fast action.
The reel for either of the three rods should have a good drag. You don't want to hang a
large brown trout on a reel with a lousy drag.
You should use at least a 7 1/2 foot leader. A twelve foot length may be a wise choice in
some situations. You should have them in sizes ranging from 0X for streamers, up to 6X for
small dry flies.
You should carry extra tippet material in sizes ranging from 0X to 6X.
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 places you will need
Felt soles would be our first choice. If you are concerned about the spread of Didymo, the
new rubber soles may be your choice.
We always recommend "Perfect Fly" Trout Flies. Our scud and sowbug imitations are the
most realistic imitations commercially available. We have specific imitations of all aquatic
insects in all stages of life.
