Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for Otter Creek, Vermont
We are recommending a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for all of the fishing. There are some
anglers that prefer a 6 weight fly floating fly line for heavier nymphs and streamers.
Leaders should range in sizes from a 0X for streamers up to a 6X for midges and small dry
flies. Lengths ranging from nine feet up to twelve feet in length are suggested.
Extra tippet material ranging from 0X to 6X should be available for the leaders we list above.
We suggest either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod for each line size you choose to fish. That will
handle about anything you will catch from Otter Creek. It should have a medium fast to fast
action and be nine feet in length.
The fly reel you use for the 4, 5 or 6 weight line should be light and have good drags,
preferably disc drags, There are some 18 inch brown trout in Otter Creek. You don't want to
loose a nice brown trout because of a poor or rough operating drag.
Waders are necessary for Otter Creek. We prefer the breathable type but you may want
neoprene waders for Winter fishing.
Felt soles are not any longer legal.
A landing net is purely an optional item.
We recommend our "Perfect Flies" because we think they are the best flies you can
purchase. They are not only the most realistic flies you can buy, they are the most effective
ones you can use. If you haven't done so already, we hope you will give them a try. We have
many customers who use them on Otter Creek. The larger wild and holdover browns can be
especially selective. If you try them, you will be glad you did.
