Here is a link to an nice article about fly-fishing small streams. A lot of solid advice. The author is from Wales, UK, but streams are streams and fish are fish.

Interesting video. Wonder how many times he said the word "control". All I could think of was how much more control he would have had with a wading staff.

Pretty cool..........small streams are my favorite , here i'm not sure the stream in those pictures would qualify as small. Good fly selection he's got there , i think they'd work on any small stream here too , one thing though , i try to stay out of the water on our small streams as much as i can. GOOD STUFF AFish!!!

Yes. I agree. Great article and thanks for posting it. As much as I like the bigger water at times. It's always nice to fish the smaller stuff I learned on.

Since my hands and eyes limit my ability to tie anyone know where I can buy the KLINKHAMER SPECIAL? I gogled it but see no online sores to buy either of the first 2 flies mention in the article.

Orvis has them and they are having GIANT FLY SALE!!! 25% off I believe.

Klinks are great fly pattern and deserves a spot in everyone's fly box, IMO.

Here's the link:

It seems strange to fish a small stream without the hope of catching any wild brookies

I have already been reminded. Brook trout are not the only wild trout and I have kept that reminder with me. If you're fishing wild browns put your game face on. To be elated in Portugal was to catch a brown over 20cm. They don't hit the same, they're spooky and nothing about them is easy. Picky, picky..sip and lay..but what a treat to hook on.

Did you buy a new net yet?

I know they arent, but they are the Pennsylvanian icon of a wild fish. Just as the green backs are the icon of the midwest.

And i dont recall being in need of a new net why do you ask?
