Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies - Valley Creek Pennsylvania
We recommend a 4 or 5 weight, floating fly line for most of the fishing on Valley Creek. Some
anglers may prefer to use a 6 weight fly floating fly line for heavier nymphs and streamers.
Don't let the small size of Valley Creek fool you. It has some big brown trout.
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 above.
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 Valley Creek. We prefer the breathable type.
Felt soles would be our choice. The new rubber soles may work well. Much of the bottom is
A wading staff may be needed under higher water conditions.
A landing net would be purely optional.
We recommend our on "Perfect Fly" Trout Flies. We have specific imitations of all the insects,
crustaceans, minnow and baitfish and terrestrial insects that fish feed on in Valley Creek. They
are not only the most realistic flies you can buy, they are the most effective at catching trout.
The wild browns in Valley Creek can be very selective to the insects that are available at the
time and matching nymphs/larvae and the hatch is often necessary to catch them. If you
haven't done so already, we recommend you give our Perfect flies a try. There are the most
realistic and effective trout flies you can purchase.
