Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies - Saugatuck River
Connecticut

Fly Line:
We recommend either a 4, 5 and 6 weight fly lines for the Saugatuck River in Connecticut.  
You only need a floating fly line most of the time but you may want a sinking tip or sinking line
to fish the still water ponds, especially during cold weather.

Fly Rod:
We recommend either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod for the respective line size you choose to
use. The fly rods should be nine feet long and in a medium fast to fast action.

Fly Reel:
The fly reel used should be for each of the 4, 5 and 6 weight lines you use and each have a
very good drag. We prefer disc drags but there are other types that will work as well. It
should be smooth.

Leaders:
Leaders should size 1X to 6X and be from 7 and a half to 9 feet long. Use shorter leaders for
streamers.

Tippet:
You should have spare tippet in 1X and 6X. Some anglers prefer fluorocarbon but mono is
fine.

Waders:
Waders are preferred for fly fishing Saugatuck River. We prefer the breathable type.

Wading Boots:
Wading boots will be needed. Felt soles work best but you may want to consider the new
rubber soles.

Landing Net:
A landing net would be preferred by most anglers but not absolutely necessary.

Trout Flies:
Perfect Flies are recommend because they are the best trout flies you can purchase. We
have specific imitations of every food that exist in the Saugatuck River. If you haven't already
tried Perfect Flies, we certainly hope you will. You will find they are very effective in this river.
We have many Connecticut anglers that use them exclusively.
