Default Re: Tiny Creek Brookies

I fished a brook trout creek very similar to this recently. It's what my 6'6" 3 wt bamboo rod was made for. Be patient, and use the tall grass to hide behind. If they're leader shy you may need to make downstream casts. Try quartering downstream against the opposite bank. If that doesn't work, experiment with different presentations. Also, keep in mind that it could've been your fly that they were turning their noses too and not your fly line. Good luck! I hope to see some brook trout pics soon.
