Fly Fishing Gear for Monture Creek Montana
We suggest either a 4 or 5 weight fly line for most of the fly fishing. You may want to use a 6
weight line for streamers and large nymphs.
You would want a fly rod to handle each of the above line sizes. The four or five weight rod
should be between eight and a half and nine feet in length. A medium to moderately fast action
would be best in our opinion. The 6 weight rod would be best in a nine foot length and a
medium fast action. A slightly stiffer tip makes a better nymph rod.
The reel for the four or five weight rod should have a good disc drag. It should be smooth and
adjust to fine increments. The reel for the six weight line should fit the same description as the
5 weight. Better fly reels are light, not heavy.
You should probably be using at least a 9 foot leader anywhere you fish on the Monture
Creek. There are a few situations where you may want to go up to 12 feet. You should have
spare leaders in sizes ranging from 2X for streamers, up to 7X for small dry flies.
The tippet material should range in sizes ranging from 2X to 7X.
Waders are recommended. We always prefer the breathable type unless you are fishing in
extremely cold water.
Felt soles would be our choice. The new rubber soles may work well. We haven't tried them in
this stream yet.
We always recommend our "Perfect Fly" trout flies. These flies are far more realistic and have
proven to be very effective on Monture Creek. If you haven't already done so, please give
them an opportunity to perform for you. You will be glad you did.
