When the gills bed up I like to get the fly rod after them, thats a big fight for such a small fish. One year I got the idea to put fly line on a cane pole and man I had a ball. What I did was put fly line the lenght of the pole with about a 18'' leader (4lb.),small hook and no weight. Put a cricket on the hook throw it out, the cricket will float for a little while then will slowly start to sink when the floating fly line straightens out you got him. My brother in law and I had a ball catching brim that way, give it a try.
