Re: Tiny Creek Brookies
It's all about stealth and making yourself invisible with that kind of fishing. Use a shorter rod with a dark matte finish and dark matte hardware -- not glossy paint or colorful accent wraps or shiny metal bling. Same for the reel and any pin-on accessories like forceps or clippers. Wear earth tones or camo, not bright colors. No jaunty red bandanas or St. Louis baseball caps. Your line should be a color found in nature. Hide behind bushes and trees wherever possible. Never stand up if you can stay on your hands and knees -- even when approaching the stream. Keep false casting to the absolute minimum. No sudden movements.
If you do put them down, stay invisible and wait. They will get over their jitters in 10-30 minutes and you can try agian.
