Today I was able to walk about half of the nine hole fishing course in Preston today. I found the water fast. I was able to make long casts with my #9 gold and black Panther Martin spinner. The course is in good shape and the trouts are willing. For more info on Preston’s nine hole fishing course click here.
I caught several Brown trout in the 10-14 inch range. All fish were released. As a note, i do not fish hardware as often as I once did and its not unfounded. In the hundreds of trout that I have caught and release this season I have induced no significant injuries to fish. Today i had the misfortune of putting a hook through a 10-inch trout’s eye. Next time i fish the course i will be more inclined to use a fly for lower impact angling. Most of the fish were holding in the urban trout house made of recycled concrete.
