Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies for Slickrock Creek North
Carolina

Fly Line:
You would probably want a 4 or 5 weight fly line for your dry fly fishing on Slickrock Creek.
You could get by using a 5 weight floating fly line for everything. Many anglers that fish
heavy nymphs and streamers would want a 6 weight fly line but it would not be absolutely
necessary. You also have to consider the long hike required and that you may only want to
take one fly rod.

Fly Rod:
I would suggest a rod for the 4, 5 and 6 weight lines if you choose to use all of them. The
four, five and six weight rods should be nine feet in length, in a medium to medium fast
action in our opinion.

Fly Reel:
The reel for the four, five or the six weight rod should have a decent drag. It should be
smooth.A disc drag that adjust in fine increments would be best.

Leaders:
You should probably be using at least a 7 and half foot leader anywhere you fish Slickrock
Creek. There are situation where you would want to go up to 9 feet. I would suggest having
them in sizes ranging from 1X for streamers, up to 6X for small dry flies and midges, in both
the 7 and half and 9 foot lengths.

Tippet:
You should have extra tippet in sizes ranging from 1X to 6X.

Waders:
Waders are necessary for fly fishing Slickrock Creek unless the water is warm enough for
you to wet wade.  

Wading Boots:
Much of the bottom in either gravel, sand or rock. You would not want cleats. Felt soles are
the best. We are testing the new rubber soles out and have no comment about them yet.

Trout Flies:
We recommend our "Perfect Flies". We think they are the best trout flies you can purchase.
They have been tested in Slickrock Creek by our customers and have proven very effective
there. If you haven't already tried them, we certainly hope you will. You want be disappointed.
