2 wts are perfect for up there. I can bring a 5 wt if either of you want to do tail water fishing for rainbows and browns.

The small streams like Elk Hair Caddis and Copper Johns or Prince nymphs down low, but in brookies country bring a big size 12 anything in a 1980's electric color. They aren't picky.

Thanks for the fly tips and the rod offer! If I don't pick up a small 4 piece before then I'll let you know.

Speaking of Brookies, many years ago a friend and I were pack fishing in Shenandoah NP and we came across a stream that looked to be about a foot deep and was so narrow, a tall man could straddle it. A resident 16" Brookie inhaled a size 10 Wooly Worm and put up a magnificent fight for him. One of those times you tend to savor.
