    Interesting. Definitely worth watching a few times to really instill how quickly trout spit a nymph out if it's not the real thing, and how they sometimes barely take a bite to test it out, have a little taste... Watch the indicator closely! I like the use of the pink glow bug to help locate the stonefly nymph.

    That's what active feeding looks like underwater! Jim's point about how quickly they will spit something out is well-taken.

    Also picked up on how quick they were to spit the fly out. I'd be curious to see if they guy fishing was able to detect these takes. Always wonder how may fish actually take the fly without me even knowing...

    Ditch the indicator like I did and tight line euro style and you will triple your hookups. It only took a little research on leader construction and a half day on the river to realize what could be done.
