Trout fishing is an ever-present style of angling in the UK and is most commonly practiced by the method of fly fishing, though some lure fishing is also possible. Many rivers and streams in the UK hold good populations of rainbow trout and brown trout and there are also many small lakes in which trout can be found.
Apart from rivers and streams, there are also big opportunities to enjoy trout fishing on large reservoirs in England. They are always well stocked with lots of trout and are used commonly for competition fishing and also for beginner fly fishing too. Trout fishing is accessible for both young and old, whether it is from the bank or from a boat, and at the end you can go home with a nice meal if you decide to keep your fish.
Trout are often stocked in many waters where you can fish for them. Trout fishing is a subtle discipline, where you can fish with a light spinning rod, a small float and a bottom line with a razor-sharp hook. Trout are smart fish, so you really have to do your best to tempt them. Not subtle enough? Then the trout will see through you and swim on! Of course, you can vary a lot when it comes to types of bait, trout like a lot of things. Common baits are mealworms, wax worm larvae and of course the well-known Powerbait, a malleable dough with exactly the right ingredients that trout love.
