......about time somebody honored catdaddy!:eek::
3 points off yo bid fo respected outdoorsmen of the year.....use of *********** EGGS woulda got 9 outta 9 kiddo's that woulda caught trout!:boohoo:
That would have earned yo 1 point and another helpful tip on jigs.
Nice work on teach'n/help'n the yutes......now yo see what I deal wit here on daily basis.:D
The few that didn't catch fish wanted to try and do it on their own. My guess is they were using too heavy of line. There were multiple kids that caught fish AFTER we tied them on a leader.

yep,light line is important to consistently catching trout.
You hear peeps say they use 10-12 lbs test and it will work on occasion....with live bait,high dingy water,fast moving lures.Locals down on white use 6-8 lbs test with good results.....and ive did it myself.
I cut my teeth on trout fishing at trout parks,mainly mac springs.Waters typically low,clear.
So like deer hunting,i started eliminating mistakes like squeaky stands,walking thru middle of field to get to stand,scent control,slamming doors.....and with trout fishing you need to adjust weight,fly size and color,check knots,and try to make your line light and invisible.
In the Ozarks I like 2-4lbs green maxima,i want my line to be invisible,float naturally with current,and cast as far as I can control it.
My youngest just got finished taking a full spool of line off his reel because it was clear mono.....not green......because last time his brother and I went fishing wit him.....we caught mo.:D
He also fix's his squeaky stands befo bein told now.:D
