A rock garden in a river presents an angler with a target-rich environment, featuring lots of seams, runs, soft spots, and pillows. Dave and Amelia Jensen stumbled upon this set of rocks with active trout, and Amelia ran the camera as Dave prospected with dries. They both narrate the process, walking us through the where and why of the fishing, and the results come in quite an engaging way. Note the progression through the rock garden, as Dave attempts to fish the most water while disturbing the fewest trout.
