All sorts of Trout...

The weather is still making the fishing a little tricky with gale force winds and coloured water to contend with but Sam and I have still been out wetting a line or two. We've been focusing our efforts on the trout again over the past week or two and not just browns either, Sam has also been catching a few small Sea Trout too and even his first ever Rainbow Trout on the fly.

My Set-up:
Rod: Cormoran ULX 1-9g
Reel: Shimano Rarenium CI4 2500
Line: Sunline Rockfish 0.3PE (6lb) braid with 4lb Sunline Small Game FC Leader
Lures:Various small hard bodied lures (Illex, Rapala, Taps and Siek-M) and Mepps

Sam's Set-up:
Rod: Cormoran ULX 1-9g
Reel: Shimano Stradic CI4 2500
Line: Sunline 8lb super PE braid
Lures: Various soft plastics, small hard bodied lures (Rapala and Smith) and Mepps
