Fly Fishing Gear, Tackle and Trout Flies - Wind River

Fly Line:
We recommend either a 4, 5 and 6 weight fly lines for the Wind River in Wyoming. You
only need a floating fly line. If you must hike to its waters, we recommend carrying only
one rod. You may want a sinking tip line for the lower section during colder weather.

Fly Rod:
We recommend either a 4, 5 or 6 weight fly rod for the respective line size you choose
to use. The fly rods should be 9 foot in length and in a fast action.

Fly Reel:
The fly reel used should be for each of the 4, 5 and 6 weight lines you use and each
have a very good drag. We prefer disc drags but there are other types that will work as
well. It should be smooth.

Leaders should size 0X to 6X and be from 7 and a half to 12 feet long. Use shorter
leaders for streamers.

You should have spare tippet in 0X and 6X.

Waders are preferred for fly fishing the Wind River. We prefer the breathable type.

Wading Boots:
Wading boots will be needed. Felt soles work best but you may want to consider the
new rubber soles.

Landing Net:
A landing net would be preferred by most anglers but its not absolutely necessary.

Trout Flies:
We recommend "Perfect Fly" trout flies. If you haven't already done so, you should
give "Perfect Flies" a try. They are the most realistic and effective trout flies you can
purchase. They have proven successful on the Wind River's huge wild brown and
rainbow trout as well as its other species. We have imitations of everything that hatches
from the Wind River.
