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.
I'm currently out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message, and if you would like to reach me by phone, please hang up now.
