Fly-tackle for Trout
The tackle for trout fly-fishing has been developed to a point of excellence where further improvement, save in unimportant details, seems impossible. The rods, reels, lines, and flies now specially made for the fly caster are certainly things of beauty and, if carefully treated, practically permanent joys. The matter of tackle selection for brook trout fly-fishing is a very simple affair—to the man who knows. But the man who does not know is quite capable of going to considerable expense for a museum of tackle curiosities the collective intent of which would be difficult to determine.
Herein it will be possible to state only with the utmost brevity compatible with clearness the essential tools and tackle of the fly-caster. For a more detailed treatise on fly-tackle and general equipment the reader is referred to "Fishing Kits and Equipment" by the present writer. Many years of stream use and experiment have shown that only certain tools are suited to effective and satisfactory—and sportsmanlike—fly-casting. In the following the suitability of the outfit to stream wading and fly-fishing in an average trout stream is primarily considered.
