Choosing the right lure can mean the difference between coming home with a catch or empty handed.
Many continue to be intimidated by the idea of trout fishing mainly because fly fishing is often associated to it. However, there are more ways than one to catch trout like spin casting.
When selecting the right trout lure, weather and water play an important role. Some lures are sinkers while others are floaters. You’d want to consider how heavy or lightweight your lures are particularly if it’s a windy day and the water is moving.
Nymphs are lures that work best in shallow streams where a ton of trout reside. They are intended for fishing below the surface and often use weights like split shots. Most of these nymph lures come with beads in them to help them stay down and are meant to imitate drifting aquatic insects.
Dry flies are another kind of trout lure that imitate adult insects. Compared to nymphs, they are intended to float. It’s best to keep an eye on this type of the lure and ensure they stay above the waters.
Another popular trout lures are called streamers. They appear much larger than nymphs and dry flies and are intended to imitate small fish. Most people think that trout only eat insects. However, they are fond of eating their fellow swimmers like crayfish. Most of them are designed with feathers and peacock or ostrich eyes.
Inline spinners are perfect to use with light spinning rods. Like streamers, they imitate live fish to lure in hungry trout. Let them drift through the stream and wait patiently for your fresh catch.
