But brooks are just plain dumb for a dry fly.
Couldn't agree with this last bit more, I had one nice brookie attack the same stimulator 4 times, and look at it a few more times on a creek on the bottom of the rim. It was a 10-12" fish. Couldn't believe he went for it multiple times.

I couldn't set because there was big log over the pool, and there was about 2-3 minutes between casts because the area was so tight and overgrown.

Agreed too about rare, I have only caught them in two creeks, and suspect there may only be one or two more creeks with them in the region of the rim.
