Catching trout isn’t easy, and besides presentation and the way you cast, one of the best ways to catch them is to present them with natural looking and appealing bait. While not surprising, leeches are some of the best bait that you can use, and using them is far easier than you probably imagine. Leeches are incredibly important in a trout’s diet and leech imitations are really a necessary part of any angler’s kit.
2 seasons ago my rod and reel was becoming a bit shabby and had been well used so I decided to shop around for a new bit of kit and seen some great value offers on the Greys GRXi series rods. An angling buddy of mine also used this kit so after a few practice sessions on his I decided to go for it. I ended up with a lot more for my money than I initially realized I would be getting as 3 days after ordering my rod and reel combo, my package arrived.
Knots really can be an angler’s best friend and their worst enemy at the same time. The good news is that knots don’t have to be the reason that you shy away from fishing and you don’t have to invest in a 300 page book of knots in order to perfect this important art form. There really is no reason to know each and every knot, and as long as you focus and perfect the basics you will be more than prepared to start fly fishing on any water you wish.
