Or do what some reallllly experienced older timers do (at least two I know of), dont use a hook. They feel so bad after possibly harming so many fish, and bring so many in, they just have the fly with the hook cut off or tie the fly to straight piece of metal.

Rock Creek also sits in a tight canyon which helps keep some of the afternoon sun off the water. It's steep grade also provides a higher dissolved O2 content than some other local waters.It will fish fine for you, just get them back in the water quick as Dean said. Have Fun.

This one sounds like a really nice idea just to at least get out and fish and get some tugs on your rod. Its a good idea to carry a temp gauge of some sort when fishing smaller streams helps you keep track of the water temps.
