Re: What's the Deal with Native Brookies
Where I fish for them, the Shenandoah National Park, they are both very easy and very difficult to catch.
They'll hit any pattern that is presented properly the first time they see it. However, they're really spooky towards movement. So it's tough to get close enough to throw flies at them. Keep low, don't silhouette yourself, wear neutral colors, and make your first cast your best ca
Edit: To elaborate on that last point: 90+% of brookies I catch, I catch on the first cast to the pool. Take your time, get into position while being stealthy, and make your first cast count.
