Default Yellowstone Fly Trip

Hello,

In the beginning of June i will be taking a trip to Yellowstone Hiking and Flyfishing (hopefully) I currently have a (5-7wt. Orvis Battenkill Mid Arbor Reel), with a (TFO 5wt 9'0" 4pc) Rod -is that ok for Yellowstone fishing? I need to put new line on my reel... what would you recommend? Also, I need to know what supplies to get for fly fishing in Yellowstone what size tippets,leaders,waders,flies for june, and any thing else to make this trip memorable.

I know this has allot in it but I greatly appreciate your time for reading this!

Thanks, Rob (nooby)

Your 5wt should do fine for yellowstone. Leaders in 4x to 6x. You'll need your waders as the water will still be a bit cold for wet wading. Flies I would bring are. BWO. PMD, Adams, elk hair caddis. Standard nymphs like Pheasant tail, hares ears, prince nymphs, zug bugs. A few streamers. And don't forget your camera!!
