This fall I decided to skip the late inshore fishing for seatrout and instead seek out those in the streams, where the mature trout are found in the fall and winter months to ensure the species’ survival.
The three month long project has been an experience for a lifetime, and I’ve managed to get closer to wild undisturbed trouts than I’ve ever been before. Six hours in the field was nothing when a shoal of big seatrout splashed and fought a few feet from my face.
There have been long days with no results, and there have been long days with great results. But the countless hours of walking, waiting and sneaking on the river banks… yeah, it definitely was worth the way.
