  1. I grew up in the Santa Cruz mountains in California and there are a lot of little streams exactly like this. They hold surprisingly large and extremely finicky fish and rarely see any fly fishing action.

  2. Fishing has brought me to some of the most beautiful places I’ve seen. At that point catching a fish just becomes an extra reward to an already amazing day.

  3. Wow, fishing a small stream like that would take some talented casting. I agree with Luke, its OK not to catch a fish sometimes. I always take the time to look around me and think about how lucky I am just to be in such a beautiful place.

  4. I’ve had similar experiences in the Smokies. I don’t tend to mind much either, I at least get a lot of great photographs.

  5. Strong reminder that being out in the beauty of a river is at least half the reward of fly fishing. Lovely water!

  6. I just started Fly Fishing this year and I cannot believe how addicting it is. Videos like this make me want to go sling some flies right now!

  7. I’ve hiked 9 miles into a high mountain lake here in Colorado only to be left without the tug of a trout on my line. Sometimes the beauty of the place you end up at is worth it. Nice video.

  8. Great video. Keep them coming! I don’t own any or is fishing gear yet but love everything else I have. This website might eat up my entire day. Love it!

  9. Love fishing small streams. The beauty and solitude is a real relief from the crowds on tailwaters and big rivers.

  10. Bannister always does a nice job of capturing the atmosphere of fly fishing locations. Even when we don’t catch fish, we still often walk away with something–peace.
