Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies - St. Joe River
We recommend a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for most of the fishing on the St. Joe
River. Some anglers may prefer to use a 6 weight fly floating fly line for heavier nymphs
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
We suggest either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod for each line size you choose to fish. 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.
You should have waders for fly fishing the St. Joe River. We prefer the breathable type.
Felt soles would be our choice. The new rubber soles may work well.
A wading staff may be needed under higher water conditions.
A landing net would be purely optional.
Perfect Flies are recommend because they are the best trout flies you can purchase.
We have specific imitations of everything that hatches in all stages of life that trout exist
in the St. Joe River. We also have a fine selection of quality generic and attractor flies
at very low prices. If you haven't already tried Perfect Flies, we certainly hope you will
give them a try.
