No fly rod? Try Hand Fishing.

Thanks to my friends over at Hawk Circle Wilderness Education I was made aware of this interesting video featuring hand fishing. So the next time you find yourself hiking in the back country without a rod you can still enjoy some trout for dinner. Yes I practice catch and release most of the time, but trout are really tasty too.

He has some interesting observations about trout habits. For instance he seems to think that when spooked they move from one spot to the other and then back again. This isn’t the kind of thing that you would make up, so I’m sure he has some anecdotal evidence to support it.

You can find out more over here at the Woodland Ways website.
