Default Re: Tiny Creek Brookies

Seriously consider tying up your own leaders, like 12' or so and 6X or 7X long tippets. Don't worry about how it will lay out on a 20' cast, just be sure you can cast just the leader with little more than a wrist flick - sort of like roll casting with the tippet coiled up in you line hand.

On the other hand, I know where there are 2 brooks that I have pulled a lot of brookies out of by drowning worms, and those fish will not take a fly. They swim right up to it, withing centimeters and just look at it.

Stay low, move very slowly and softly.
