WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:04.000 position:50% align:middle Don't spend time in each little pocket in small streams. 00:00:04.000 --> 00:00:07.630 position:50% align:middle For the most part, try to either take your fly on the first few casts, 00:00:07.630 --> 00:00:11.490 position:50% align:middle or you'll spook them with your presence and they won't take anything. 00:00:11.490 --> 00:00:14.240 position:50% align:middle Sneak up to an attractive spot carefully. 00:00:14.240 --> 00:00:17.940 position:50% align:middle Then make a dozen casts, and move on to the next good one. 00:00:17.940 --> 00:00:22.300 position:50% align:middle You may also have to do a lot of walking between spots to find places that 00:00:22.300 --> 00:00:23.726 position:50% align:middle might hold trout. 00:00:25.280 --> 00:00:28.460 position:50% align:middle In some small streams, you'll find fish in almost 00:00:28.460 --> 00:00:30.730 position:50% align:middle every little pocket. 00:00:30.730 --> 00:00:35.430 position:50% align:middle In others, you'll only find them in the very best places. 00:00:35.430 --> 00:00:40.750 position:50% align:middle When I fish into a stream, I like to fish everything first. 00:00:40.750 --> 00:00:46.350 position:50% align:middle And then, only if I find trout in the deeper, more protected pockets will I move 00:00:46.350 --> 00:00:47.980 position:50% align:middle quickly between spots. 00:00:47.980 --> 00:00:50.350 position:50% align:middle And then, just look for the good stuff. 00:00:50.350 --> 00:00:53.690 position:50% align:middle If you're not catching fish in a small stream just keep moving. 00:00:53.690 --> 00:00:55.210 position:50% align:middle It's usually not the fly. 00:00:55.210 --> 00:00:58.100 position:50% align:middle I've got a big, attractive dry fly on here. 00:00:58.100 --> 00:01:00.130 position:50% align:middle I'm hanging a nymph below it. 00:01:00.130 --> 00:01:01.670 position:50% align:middle Not picking up any fish. 00:01:01.670 --> 00:01:03.410 position:50% align:middle The fish just haven't woken up. 00:01:03.410 --> 00:01:06.820 position:50% align:middle So hopefully, by moving, you'll find a place where the fish are a 00:01:06.820 --> 00:01:08.000 position:50% align:middle little more agreeable.
