The larger fish were holding on the bottom layer and taking larger nymphs with a selective take...

To clarify; most of the larger fish in this video are in the 12-15" range. Notice the abnormal dimpling in the females' bellies.

Note: If you have a fast connection; be sure and change the video setting to 480p and use a larger window to get the best views.
Try using tungsten beads if you don't already, also florocarbon is well worth the extra money as well.
