Fly Fishing Gear for the Teton River Montana
You need gear ranging from light line for the brook trout, to heavier line for streamers and
nymphs fly fishing the Teton River. You could get by with a five weight outfit for just about
everything if you needed to.
We recommend fly lines ranging from a 4 weight or less for the brook trout in the
headwaters of the Teton River, to a six weight for nymphing and streamers. A five weight
fly line would deliver most of the flies you would normally use, but a 6 weight would be
better for nymphs.
You should have leaders ranging from a 9 foot tapered leader to a 12 foot in sizes from 0X
for streamers up to a 6X for midges and tiny flies. You may want some shorter streamer
Carry tippet ranging in sizes from 0x to 6X.
The fly rod for the 4, 5 and 6 weight lines should be nine feet long, in a medium fast to fast
Reels for the lines sizes you choose should be light and have good drags.
Waders are definitely recommended. We prefer the breathable type but you could use the
neoprene type in very cold weather.
Felt soled wading boots are our choice. We are testing the new rubber sole wading boots
but have no recommendation as of this date.
A landing net is recommended, but not necessary.
Our "Perfect Flies" are the best ones you could possibly use for the Teton River. We have
flies to match every terrestrial and aquatic insect in all stages of life. If you haven't done so
already, please give them a try. You will be glad you did.
