Thanks to Ben for the Stream report and Review of the Simms Headwaters Pant.
Just wanted to say thank you for steering me toward the Simms Headwaters Pant. I really like the reinforced knees for kneeling down in those quiet, shallow pools. Jason pointed me toward the Cloudveil boots which I absolutely love. They are extremely light for hiking those trails and still handle the slippery rocks in the river.
The fishing was fantastic this weekend. I started out prospecting with a caddis pupae and hooked into a big brown. Unfortunately, he wrapped my leader around a submerged log and got away. I switched to a sulphur dry in the evening and had a great deal of success. They were taking my fly just under the surface film. I brought 8 to hand within 40 minutes of fishing. Thanks for advising me on some great gear and hooking me up with some awesome patterns!
