Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout flies for Tulpehocken Creek
If you enjoy using light line and a light fly rod, we are recommending a 4 weight, floating fly
line but only if you want to go light. We recommend a 5 weight, floating fly line for dry flies and
lighter nymphs and a 6 weight, fly floating fly line for heavier nymphs and streamers.
Leaders should range in sizes from a 0X for streamers up to a 6X for midges and small dry
flies. Lengths ranging from seven and one-half feet, up to 12 feet in length are suggested.
Extra tippet material ranging from 0X to 6X should be available for the leaders we list above.
We recommend a medium fast to fast action fly rod nine feet in length for all three weights of
The fly reels you use for the 4, 5 or 6 weight lines, if you choose to use them all, should be
light and have good drags. You are subject to hook as large a trout as they are in the
Tulpehocken Creek and you don't want to loose it because of a lousy drag.
We recommend waders. There are few places you could fish without them. We prefer the
breathable type but you could use neoprene waders during the winter if you preferred.
We recommend felt soles for your wading boots. You may want to consider the new rubber
sole boots that help prevent the spread of Didymo but we have not tested them on this
As always we recommend "Perfect Fly" trout flies. We suggest you look at our hatch chart
and select the flies for the particular time of year you plan on fishing. You should have a
good selection of streamers for the brown trout. The flies you have for the aquatic insects
should vary depending on the time of the year you are fishing. There is no one particular
insect that is more important than any other one throughout the season. The trout can
become selective on certain insect hatches.
