Default Re: Tiny Creek Brookies

There are certain blue lines in my state where the brook trout can be caught fairly easily with bushy flies in the quieter pools of water. Then again.....their is one small stream that parallels a popular hiking trail off the blue ridge parkway.........beautiful water......large pools full of brookies......and some of the hardest trout to fool!!! Maybe it's the human traffic and the state of constant alertness that make those trout so much harder to catch...Stay low , walk softly, cast well ahead of yourself if possible, with a long leader and fine tippet, and keep the fly line off the water....good luck and good fishing. The challenge in itself will make you a better fisherman!!

Here I walk slowly, deliberately, taking it one step, one trout, one sunset at a time. -Harry Middleton
