Fly Fishing Gear and Trout Flies for the White River Colorado
You would probably want a 4 or 5 weight fly line for your dry fly fishing on the White River.
You could get by using a 5 weight floating fly line for everything. Many anglers that fish

I would suggest a rod for the 4, 5 and 6 weight lines if you chose to use them all. The four,
five and six weight rods should be nine feet in length in a medium fast to fast action.
The reels for the four, five or six weight rods should have decent drags. They should be
smooth. A disc drag that adjust in fine increments would be best.
You should probably be using at least a 7 1/2 foot leader anywhere you fish the White
River. There are situation where you would want to go up to 12 feet. I would suggest
having them in sizes ranging from 0X for streamers, up to 6X for small dry flies and midges,
in both the 9 and half and 12 foot lengths.
You should have extra tippet in sizes ranging from 0X to 6X.
Waders are necessary for the White River unless the water is warm enough for you to wet
Much of the bottom in either gravel, sand or rock. You would not want cleats. Felt soles
are the best.
We recommend "Perfect Flies". We think they are the best trout flies you can purchase.
They have been tested extensively on the White River and have proven very effective
there. If you haven't already tried them, we certainly hope you will. You want be
