Packing List for Small Stream Fishing Trips

Having a good gear list and tackle for fly fishing creeks, streams, and other "small water" environments is the key to success and having a good time. Having accessible gear, good boots, and being mobile makes you both more effective and more comfortable on the water.

Gear Checklist:
 000 - 5 Weight Rod with floating line. Small water and small fish are best pursued with a light rod. Most anglers like a 7'6" 3 Weight for the average mountain stream with trout 6-14"
 Floating Fly Line
Backpack, Sling Pack, or Vest
7.5' 4X Leaders (a good average)
3-6X Tippet
 Small Indicators
Floatant
Hemostats
Nippers
Quick Dry Pants
Waders (in cold water conditions)
Wading Boots/Neoprene Socks (wading sandals for easy to wade streams)
 Flies - dry flies! If you plan to fish small streams, especially mountain streams, then be sure to bring lots of small dry flies with an emphasis on terrestrials.
