Thanksgiving Trout

Recommended Posts

I have been in southwestern VA for the past couple of days staying with family. I've gotten out for some trout fishing a couple of times, fishing a special regulation stream here. I have caught a mixture of wild and stocked fish, browns and rainbows. Yesterday I went out before thanksgiving lunch and caught my personal best rainbow, a holdover fish that was 23" long. Plenty of pretty wild trout mixed in too!

Trout Magnet on a 1/32oz head caught the big one, the smaller fish were caught on artificial salmon eggs.

4lb seguar fluorocarbon, shimano sienna 1000, field and stream tec lite 6'6" Light action. The line is more important than the rod and the reel is less important than that.
