Bass and pike may be big game fish, but nearly as many anglers dream of landing a huge rainbow trout. These gentle and skittish feeders prefer streams, simply because their eggs require the oxygen and cleanliness of moving water. Although they can be found in lakes, they are typically stocked or are located next to attached streams. Stocked fish are not wild and are easier catches for anglers. For sportsmen wanting a real challenge and a trophy worth bragging about, it is a better idea to head to the remote stream with fishing reels and lure.
Trout in streams tend to be smaller, and are easily startled because they can often see the angler. It is important to remain crouched and silent while approaching a stream pool, and be very silent, so not to arouse the fishes’ suspicion. Many fishing reels may be used, but fly fishing is favored among trout fishers. There are as many different flies as there are hairs on a horse’s tail, and their light weight gives a fly lure a noiseless entry. Fly fishing is appropriate for the natural flow of a stream, and even allows for small baits that floats on the surface, appearing just the same as a stranded insect.
Perhaps the most sought after game fish in the world is the bonefish. These critters are unique in that they amphidormous, meaning that they migrate from inshore tropical waters to shallow mudflats, and back. This type of fly game fish is found in tropical regions like Hawaii, the Bahamas, and the Florida Keys. Typically, the fish are not eaten, although they are considered a delicacy in Hawaii.
Bonefish get spooked easily and are quite large. This means if you do hook one it will give you quite a fight. You and your party are going to need quality fly fishing reels to get the job done. If you’re an angler looking for a fishing challenge, then you should definitely try your hand at bonefishing.
