I have built some smaller glass rods that I need to take a trip and use them specifically. Glass is great for smaller stream stuff!! I just need to find the right smaller stream...

Reading this one now , met Ed at the Catskills Museum one winter & sat next to him while he tied ,always gave me on the water tips when we bumped into each other ,snow covered wild Rainbow mountain streams . We exchange emails thru the season . It’s an excellent read ,

You wouldn't happen to have the recipe for this would you? I'm always on the lookout for gems with names like these. I feel like cooking today and want to bake a batch of these for the little brookies .

Having grown up there , yes lots of unknown precious streams of every type, most all still have natives,In most of the trickle rock bottom ones you can just sit down and watch them in 90 degree weather, or a light rain. Most mushroom hunters know many . We, I never fished them, more as how amazingly they still survive. Some of the best drinking water anywhere along with extreme difficulty to access these sanctuaries.
