Fly Fishing Gear for the Pleasant River Maine
Either a four or five weight-forward, floating fly line is all you will need to fish the Pleasant
We recommend you carry leaders ranging from 9 feet to 12 feet long, in sizes ranging from
2X to 6X. You may also want some shorter leaders for streamer fishing.
Spare tippet material should be on hand for the above size leaders from 2X to 6X.
The fly rod for the 4 or 5 weight line should be a nine foot, medium to medium fast action
The fly reel should be as light as possible for the appropriate size fly lines. A good drag
would come in handy in case you hook a good size brown trout.
Waders are preferred although there are places you can fish from the bank. We prefer the
Felt bottom wading boots are recommended.
A landing net is purely an optional item.
We recommend our own "Perfect Flies" because they are the most realistic and effective
imitations of the things trout eat that you can purchase. We suggest you have the flies
necessary to match the insects during the time you plan on fishing the Pleasant River. We
also have generic and attractor flies at a very reasonable price if you prefer them.
