Re: Trout on lures
No, what I am saying is that in my experience in those countries bait and fly anglers are very different and discrete groups.
In northern Norway most of the rivers are segregated with regard to lure and fly anglers, and the same is true in Sweden and indeed most of Canada. Here on the chalk streams of the south I know of no beats for lure anglers at all.
There remains a huge and lucrative market for those of us who want to cast a particular fly, to a particular fish on a particular beat rather than thrash the water into a foam using a lure or spinner of some description.
Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.
Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher’s salary. ~
