Fly Fishing Gear and Trout Flies for the Musconetcong
River in New Jersey
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.
You would want a fly rod to handle each of the above line sizes. The four, five
and six weight rods should be nine feet in length. A moderately fast to fast
action would be best.
The reels for the four, five or six weight rods should have good drags. You don't
want to hang a large Musconetcong River trout and loose it because of a poor
drag. It should be smoothand adjust to fine increments.
You should probably be using at least a 7 and 1/2 foot leader anywhere you
fish. 12 foot lengths might come in handy in some cases such as Trico hatches.
You should have them in sizes ranging from 0X for streamers, up to 6X for small
Be sure to carry extra tippet material matching your leader sizes ranging from 0X
I would definitely suggest waders because there are few places you can fish
without them and be very successful.
Felt soles would be our choice.
We always recommend "Perfect Fly" Trout Flies, not only because we sell them
but also because they are the best flies you can buy. They are the most
realistic imitations available and the most effective at fooling the trout. The
Musconetcong River holdover trout will fall for them much quicker than generic
or attractor flies. We have many customers that use nothing else but Perfect
Flies on this stream. We hope you will give them an opportunity to perform for
