Strategies: Fishing A High Mountain Trout Run

New on MidCurrent this week, Phil Monahan offers excellent advice about how to approach and fish wild trout in high-mountain streams. As Phil notes, it’s all about stealth, short drifts, and working every part of the water.
EXCERPT: “Always work upstream, which gives you the advantage of approaching trout from the rear. Some folks take extreme stealth measures — crawling on hands and knees up to each pool — but if you simply crouch, avoid jerky movements, and keep your shadow off the water, you should be fine.”

    This sounds like a perfect tenkara approach to me. Do you guys have experience with that that you can share?
