I explored a tiny piece of water today. In the back of my mind lingered the hope that it would contain brook trout, but I knew it was extremely unlikely. I have fished streams this size that had brook trout before, but this one lacked the depth some of those streams had. It did, however have fish. Just not salmonids. It was full of little dace and shiners, and with a stripped hook and a LOT of effort I somehow hooked into my 51st fly rod species, a blacknose dace. Micro fishing! I'm still not sure how that "big" hook found lip but I won't dwell on it.
