5 Useful Tips On Trout Fishing

In fishing, trout are one of the favorite “fishing friends” of most anglers. These crafty fish are abundant anywhere. The native habitat of these crafty fish depends on the type of trout.

For brook trout, the native habitat includes the territory from Labrador westward to the Saskatchewan, while the rainbow trout is a native of the Pacific slope from Alaska to California.

On the other hand, brown trout has found its way into the waters of every state in the United States except Florida, Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, and Texas. It has been reported in the waters of some of these states, but according to conservation officials, no authentic reports have been received. It is also found in many parts of Canada.

In trout fishing, there are some factors that need to be considered in order to have a successful catch.

1. For trout fishing, the leader should not be greased. It will not sink far enough to cause any difficulty when picking the line and lure from the water, but if it is allowed to float; it will cast a shadow on the bottom of the stream which may scare the trout.

2. The trout is one of the fishes that are usually secured through the use of the dry fly. For trout, the current as well as the pools should be fished. It may sometimes be a bit difficult to keep the fly from sinking or dragging because of the various conditions of the current, but this is a matter that the angler will have to figure out for himself.

3. It is not good practice when fishing for trout to fish directly upstream so the flies, line, and leader will float directly over fish. The fisherman should make the cast from one side of the stream so the fly will only float over the fish.

4. It is important to make the first cast the best. A feeding trout will usually strike the first lure presented if it is cast so that it will float over his private domain. The angler should never fail to fish the lower end of the pool first even if the trout are rising in the middle or upper end.

5. Trout are sometimes very moody or selective and will try the patience of any angler; hence, possibly a fly with less hackle will do the trick or it may be necessary to use a spent-wing fly or a fan wing.

Indeed, catching trout fishes can be lots of fun. The anglers just have to remember these tips in order to have a happy catch.

To be an amateur fisherman there are basic pieces of fishing equipment needed to complete your exciting journey in the fishing world. Knowing the line type and matching the right rod and reel to the fishing technique is just basic common sense.

The 3 main issues when shopping for a rod are: Guides that are attached to the rod; Grip or handle holds the rod and could come in either cork or foam. They come in different lengths so the comfort to the user must be considered; and the reel seat where the reel is connected.

Dealers make a lot of fishing rods that could either be single or consist of two or more pieces when assembled. The connection is very simple; just connect the male and female ends together to make sure the guides are lined up. This would only last for a minutes. Sometimes, lubricants are needed. When shopping for a rod, slightly bend it to get the feel of it. Again comfort should be considered when using the equipment.

Rods of any type will work. It should be around 6′ long and medium weight. Even a long stick will work. This should be long, straight and flexible so it will not easily break. The most popular rod is Graphite because it is so light yet so strong. Wispy rods should be up to 4m long to be used for long casts in moderate winds.

There are a lot of fishing lines to choose from and it can be very confusing to find the best. It is mostly made of nylon and “monofilament” that comes in spools of different lengths that are called Tests. The larger the fishing line the thicker it is in diameter.

The Fishing Trip

The 5 am alarm had just gone off, and it was signaling it was time for Jane to wake up. As a new year resolution, she had decided to reduce her weight by exercising and observing her diet.in the past years, she had accumulated a lot of weight for living an unhealthy lifestyle of eating fast foods, and she barely exercised.


She prepared herself quickly putting on her jogging pants and sneakers and left to jog. Her jogging track involved running around a lake that was a few miles from her home. She always looked forward to jog because she had met this amazing and good looking guy who was a fisherman. Jogging in the morning was so convenient for her given that there were not many people to distract her. Also, it enabled her to start her day feeling fresh and rejuvenated.


The weather that night had been so conducive and Mike had spent the whole night on the lake fishing. Most of the times, Mike and Jane usually met during this morning hours as he was returning from his fishing expeditions. They had developed feelings for one another, but no one had disclosed their emotions to the other.


But this morning something was different, Mike had returned earlier than usual, and so they did not meet. This day, Jane too was so preoccupied with the items of the report she was to present that day to the management. She did not even notice that the fisherman had left early that day.


Just before she finished the final lap around the lake she saw something unusual and decided to check. As she slowly approached the grassy patch, she noticed a big brown bag lying concealed by the tall grass. Drawing closer she realized the bag had some blood stains on it, and she was immediately engulfed in fear. Could it be Mike’s body stashed in that bag? She started wondering.  “Had her boyfriend killed someone and hid their body in the bag?”


She wanted to call the police when Mike emerged, but she couldn’t let him get close. “How could you?” she shouted at him. “I cannot continue dating a murderer; I have to report this.” Mike got confused. “Can I explain?” he pleaded.  It was at that moment that she Jane realized that Mike dressed differently. “I have been waiting for this moment, to show you something” he explained.

“ would you like to accompany me to try my new fishing gear this weekend, will you?”.


She had been waiting for this moment for Mike to ask her out for a date. Jane was so confused, how could she be so judgmental? “Sure, I would love to.” After a short chat, they parted after agreeing to meet that weekend for the fishing.
