(November 13, 2018) St. John’s Fly Fisher Matt Williams shared an insightful presentation of a “Trout’s View” in the November monthly meeting.
There were 15 in attendance who actively engaged in discussion around many of Matt’s topics. In particular, where a trout is facing in the stream and how our own angler presence can be detected was of great interest. Helpful tips Matt shared: color of clothing, holding off getting into water, crouching and kneeling around rocks, and use of camo colors.
“No one expected to hear that trout cannot hear anglers talking,” said Bill Nuttall, a new fly fisherman to the group/ministry.
With many new fly fishers in the group, there were a lot of great questions with answers from both Matt and experienced anglers (catchers). These discussions were helpful for learning from scratch and also for those with years under their belt to refresh what has faded over time.
Be sure to attend the next monthly St. John’s Fly Fishers Meeting on Wednesday, December 12th (2nd Weds of each month – 3rd Floor). Dan Robertson will present “Reading the Water in a Trout Stream”.
