I got a couple hours in on a little creek today in the rain. Water was up and slightly stained, so I put on a dropper. Still managed at least 5 or 6 on the dry, but the nymph was more popular with the locals. With the extra water there were more pockets, but they were generally smaller and quicker. I'd give each one a drift or two and hit the next. I lost the biggest fish I hooked. It looked like a westslope. Typical.

Jim,

I don't think that's correct. "Creek" is the correct spelling for both "creek" and "crick." Believe it or not I learned that from a college professor who claimed to know such things.

I'm taking the Mark Twain approach to local pronunciations. Literary license; I've got one.

He was obviously delusional, Sg. Montana is chock-full of cricks & that is what they are all called, even by perfessers and other folks who learn you stuff . . . and I went to school there a long time. Some grades twice . . .

I went back and found redemption on this fish, since I know where he lives. Not just that, but I found his cousin in the next pool above him. And, no dropper was needed. Take THAT, cosmos. Ha-HA!
