As a beginner, all of the options for gear can get pretty confusing! After a couple years of really figuring out what I need and don't need, it is all about being simple. To get started all you need is a 4 or 5 wt. fly rod if you are going to be fishing on these small streams. The length of your rod should be 8-9ft. long. A weight forward floating fly line is all you need on your rod. An expensive reel is not needed as most fish you catch won't be peeling off 50-60 yds. of line. I feel that the color of your floating line is a personal choice.(I prefer green)

Here is a quick video of a summertime brownie that I caught off the backend of a riffle/head of a pool. I knew there was a big rock next to the point of grass that stuck out so I just had to cast there. I just happened to be confident enough that there was a trout there that I broke out the video camera quick.

The streams S. of the Wisconsin River in Grant county were hit with some rains so some of the bigger/siltier streams may be still chocolate milk! Look to fish the smaller streams/tributaries.
*My go to fly for the weekend was a Black Trico with a white foam top for visability.
