Gotta have some wet flies and soft hackles on the small streams man. Ants are often a winner too.

My small stream fishing has been pretty much limited to the high Sierras. In this case I would only need three. Well I would probably have a few Black Gnats stuck away somewhere. Most of these would be size 14 or smaller.
