Some of what this stream is. As tangled as it looks it has some great holding places for the trout.
I came upon this nice slow moving pool. I still had the Pickett Pin on. Casting towards the large rock on the right I saw a fish come up for the fly. Having noticed several winter stones in the air I changed the fly and put on a caddis dry.

Fishing the pool the same way I fished the wet fly, I drifted the caddis the same way. On the third drift the trout rose and I had my first fish to hand.
A precious wild jewel...he was one several I would catch on the dry from that pool. It appears that this stream managed to survive.
