South Toe River - Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies
All of the fly fishing can be done with a four, five or six weight floating, weight forward fly line. A
floating line should work fine for any type of fishing you do on the South Toe River. You could
use a sinking tip fly line for special applications.
You should have leaders ranging from size 1X for streamers up to 6X for midges. They should
range from seven and one-half feet to twelve feet in length with nine feet being the most used
You should have spare tippet material in the same sizes as the leaders mentioned above.
The fly rods should be nine foot long in our opinion. They should have a moderately fast to
The fly reels you use should have a good disc drag. I wouldn't want to hook a large rainbow or
brown trout on a reel with a lousy drag.
I would recommend waders anywhere you fish the South Toe River.
Felt soles work fine for this stream but you may want to consider the newer rubber soles to
help prevent the spread of didymo.
A wading staff would be purely optional.
We always recommend "Perfect Flies" because they are the most effective flies you can
purchase. We have specific imitations of just about everything fish eat. If you haven't tried
them yet, we certainly hope you will. Over 90 percent of our customers have reordered and
those that haven't probably will in the future.
