Filleting a Trout

We've been doing it wrong all along!

While we're all for catch and release, many anglers do take a fish now and again, if you do it's nice to be able to avoid any wastage of this precise resource.

We stumbled across this great clip from RedCastle Outdoors.  In almost 40 years of fly fishing we had never seen a fish filleted precisely this way - so simple, and now that we see it - so logical!

Superb!

Nice to see you using maybe my most favorite knife ever made. I have one since I bought it in 1965. It’s not only the right size for trout but it the right size for other things too. Be it in the kitchen or field dressing a deer in the fall. Oh, and there is nothing wrong with keeping a trout or two for the table from time to time.

Surely the best way is;
1 Buy / build an Epic rod
2 Use it to catch a fish on a Bob Wyatt fly
3 Then watch the video

Fly Casting  - The Roll Cast. I can't over emphasise how important this cast is. Deceptively simple, the Roll Cast is the most useful and versatile cast there is - more so than the fundamental overhead cast that is so synonymous with single handed fly casting.

Monofilament vs fluorocarbon.

I believe it’s Lefty that is credited with saying “There’s more bullshit in fly fishing than in a Texas cattle yard” (excuse the French) A phrase that is no more apt than when citing the 'Fluoro vs Mono' discussion.
