That's what I have been finding on the Wilson the last few times I have been down there. Great fun, isn't it! I just bend the barbs down before I start and most flip OFF before I get them all the way in. Great practice for setting the hook with the 4wt and launching them over my head into the bushes!

I did the same thing on the Salt on Saturday. What a great time. Little flies and little fish but they were hitting all day long. Biggest was about 10" but what a great time. I love fishing pocket water during low flow. Wet wading to keep cool. Makes for a fun afternoon. Thanks for the great post and great pics.

It was a great day....I hiked way up the river and found a nice little hole...didn't find any big trout, tho. I caught about 10 small ones. This is one pic I got...the SAVE button on my cell kept eluding me...hehe. Was curious about the color of the fins....probably something simple but this little guy had some spunk in him. Took a quick pic so I wouldn't hurt him....
