I've been fishing for trout in California for the past 45 years, so if you need some pointers, feel free to ask. Keep in mind that I haven't caught one since December two years ago, so what the hell do I know? Be careful Kandy, it's addictive. You've been warned.
I have caught some trout lately even managed to set the #18 hook deep in my big toe area on right foot. I can also help with what to use and what tactics HURT you more than HELP you.
