Video spotlight: Small-stream stealth for trout

I'm an avid backcountry trout angler—the smaller the stream, and the higher I need to go to get to it, the better. Small-water trout may not always be sizeable (but you might be surprised), but they are generally wild, often native and always something to behold.

Small Stream Stealth for Trout

Above, Bill Spicer with the New Fly Fisher offers up a very quick primer on small-stream trout, where the fish tend to hang out in their diminutive environs, and what it takes to dependably catch them. It won't give you all the tools you need to catch small-water trout, but it's a good, quick refresher. Hint: stealth matters, as does structure, current and cover.
