Fooling Spring Trout

I don’t often take the time to recommend offline sources of news of interest to fly fishers, but the April issue of Field & Stream is as good a bit of reading as anything else I’ve come across in the last couple of months. Besides containing the complete (and expertly annotated) “50 Ways to Fool Spring Trout,” there are a number of sidebars on topics as varied as trout vision, shad, and keeping your breathable fabrics breathable, as well as a fine piece on catching monster brook trout on Labrador’s Kanairiktok River. And a great photo of Marty Reed’s fly-festooned dashboard. Somehow they manage to make it all fresh, and it left me wishing “traditional” fly fishing periodicals would break out of the mold occasionally.
