Penns Creek native brookies

Caught eight native brookies on Penns Creek near Coburn, PA between 2 and 4:30 pm. today Most strikes were on the good old standard - the basic Dave Sawyer's pheasant tail nymph pattern on #14 hook, dead drifted over the riffles, keeping the rod tip high. No fly line even on the water - just 9-ft leader and tippet exposed beyond the end of the rod.
