Met Matt Hainst on the Tully. There is no way to spot burn this stream as it's well known and visited by everyone within 100 miles. Even so, I won't say exactly where we fished, but I started upstream a few miles nymphing, then joined Matt downstream for some dry fly action. We both caught fish and we both had refusals, but a good time was had by all, except a dozen or so fish who were, after a bit of exercise and further education, released. I had fish up to 14 inches, and Matt some bigger, I believe, but Matt can correct me if I'm wrong about this. No photos that I know of. The fish were fat and healthy, if well-schooled.

Louis...If they weren't "well-schooled" before you and Matt showed up, they are now! :)
