Fishing for trout? Having some difficulties with your fishing game? If so, chances are very high that you're not using the right fishing lure or bait. Now how can I be so sure? Trout are quite voracious. They are insatiable eaters. If you present the proper lure, they'll gobble it up most efficiently and with impressive speed. The first thing then is being able to make that fish bite the hook. And if you're armed with the right powered fishing rod and a fishing line with the correct flexibility and strength, catching trout will be a simple pleasure. We know that trout are ravenous eaters. To be precise, they are carnivores who have a fondness for live small creatures that are willing to put up a good fight. No creature, aquatic or terrestrial, is ever safe with this fish. A trout would even feed on smaller fishes, providing that they could fit into its comparatively large mouth. Based on these facts, the following are considered to be the most excellent baits for trout: ▪ Dry flies. These artificial flies are crafted to look like real flies. When tugged upon, they can even imitate the movement of their living counterparts. Considering a trout's voracious appetite, dry flies are perfect baits for its perpetually hungry mouth. ▪ Sinkers. These are nymphs and wet flies that have been prepared to sink to the bottom of the water. Because trout feeds beneath the surface of the water most of the time, sinkers have improved odds of capturing the target's attention. ▪ Emergers. Trout are predators. They know when their preys are most vulnerable. Can there be any more fragile condition than that of an invertebrate which has just emerged from its nymph stage into young adulthood? (Lo, the circle of life.) By replicating these "emergers," lure-crafters manage to garner the attention of trout greedy for a satisfying meal. ▪ Streamers. These are lures that are intended to descend rapidly so that they may attract and appeal to an aggressive trout. Streamers are among the most popular artificial fly baits. This category includes the woolly buggers and the sculpins. When fishing for trout, as when hunting for wild game, you always have a better chance of getting a good catch when you know how your intended prey behaves. Not only that but your chance for success will significantly increase if you also know about your prey's location. As with most things in life, the more you know the better. When it comes to fishing lures, you shouldn't ever just settle for the first lure that becomes available. Study the list above and plan a strategy based on that. You'll have a much better chance at having a great fishing trip with a more abundant yield.
