I meant to vote for #3 but accidentally voted for #1, so mark #3 +1.

3 is an adrenaline pumper. Woot R

That fat 14" brook hit life a freight train. That is a no more than a 3 foot dink and dunk. I could not get my hand around that fish! Thick!!

That's truly jungle guerilla fishing. Can't imagine trying to get into some of those spots with my 8 foot fly rod. The proof is in the video that it's worth the effort. Some fine looking Brook Trout Randy.

Somewhere on YouTube (of course I can't find it right now) there's a video of some guy fishing micro fishing using a short rod and "bow & arrow" casting to ridiculously small spots of open water on a heavily covered stream. A couple times he was on his belly trying to work the fly in.

I've seen Eddie do the bow and arrow - that's some skill right there.
I've converted Ron to the dink and dunk style - he was resistant, but now he gets it Razz

The low angle pitching game is a great way to find big Brookies, they're rarely out in the open.

I am converted and changed. Hahaha. Can't stop thinking what lurks where no one else fishes! But I am getting a good education on the process!!

Number one is now the lead. The video lacks polarization. That 15" fat ass nearly went topside as it pummeled that spinner. Nearly pulled the rod out of my hand!. R

#4 was some combat fishing man. ThumpUp Hard to choose - they were all a ton of fun.

When we fish together in the Black Hills on some pretty brushy streams, one of my fishing partners often uses a 6'6" 2W he built just for small creeks and tight quarters. As fun watching him use that as it is seeing him shoot a whole flyline with a 9W.

I wonder if it would be worthwhile to take along an ice fishing spin combo for tight spots. Definitely could have used a shorter rod on the sand county stream I was fishing on Monday.

Even my 4'8" was too long in many spots.

Wouldn't take it to typical streams, but those gnarly ones really are tough with even a 5 footer.

Have a holster on my belt, so wouldn't have to carry it.

Something to consider anyway.


I walk right by jams like that 90% of the time thinking that they've already made me. EVEN THOUGH I've caught some over the years in just the way your videos show.

Gotta be more patient...
