Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for the North Fork Coeur
d'Alene River Idaho

Fly Line:
We recommend a 5 or 6 weight fly line for most of the fishing. A floating, weight forward
line is the most used and needed type of fly line. A sinking tip, sinking line and/or
shooting-head fly line comes in handy at times during cold weather .

Fly Rod:
We recommend the 5 or 6 weight fly rod in a medium-fast action that is 9 feet in length.

Fly Reel:
The fly reel used should be for either the 5 or 6 weight line should have a very good drag.
We prefer disc drags but there are other types that will work as well. Large arbor spools
are best in our opinion.

Leaders:
Leaders should be at least 8 foot long and vary in size from a 2X for streamers to a 6X for
smaller flies.
.
Tippet:
You should have spare tippet in sizes compatible with the leader your using ranging from
2X to 6X.

Waders:
Waders are necessary. We recommend the breathable type. If you fish during the cold
season, you may want to use neoprene waders.

Wading Boots:
Wading boots can have felt soles but some anglers may prefer rubber or non-felt soles.

Landing Net:
A landing net is recommended but purely optional.

Flies:
We have a complete line of flies for the North Fork Coeur d'Alene River. We have specific
imitations of every form of trout food in the river, in all stages of life that's applicable. If you
haven't done so already, we hope you will give our flies a try.
