12:30 – Tip: Position yourself upstream of where the fish is. Adam explains this technique.

13:45 – Adam describes what mousing looks like when you’re fishing from a boat.

15:40 – Adam recommends the Outbound Short fly line by Rio.

17:05 – Swinging streamers with a 2-handed rod is also a fun way to fish for rainbows.

18:00 – We noted some mouse patterns that they commonly use like the Rio Pip Squeak and Mr. Hankey. Anything that’s articulated is great because it helps with fish mortality.
