Reach: I love Craig to Stickney Creek. The best all around dry fly reach. Islands, flats, slicks, riffles, runs, early morning shade spots, wing dams, bridges, hard banks and inside bends. See, perfect! Mitch Kowalski and I speak about this stretch often. Once Mitch said to me, “Remember when we used to fish Craig to Stick, all day long?” He’s right. Make the day of it.
