Not too many years ago fishing was the most popular sport here in the UK, although hard to believe more people went fishing than watched football matches. The sport's attraction has lessened somewhat, especially amongst the younger generation whose lives seem to be totally controlled by their mobile phones and social media. The majority of them will never experience the beauty of our great outdoors, will never see the amazing selection of wildlife attracted by our rivers and lakes and will never understand the peace and tranquility that a day sitting on the side of a lake or river offers. Sadly, that's their loss but for those who have been bitten by the fishing bug this website has plenty of information related to fishing in the UK http://apap16632.bravesites.com/entries/general/fishing-for-trout-in-wales.
I want to get a decent line but as there is so much choice, I welcome opinions and advice. I never spend much on a reel as in my humble experience they are nothing more than line storage, especially for the size of fish in the upper Tees! Posts: 2,484 Re: Best 3wt floating line under40 Can't tell you the best line but I can tell you what I use, a John Norris Pro2 in a #3. I paid 5.99 for it and granted it's a tad rough but it works fine for me. If you're after something a bit better try a Barrio line, think they're around 27 delivered. What stretches of the Tees do you fish? It's also my local river. Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk

It's not hard to separate the old-timers from the beginners by the way they approach their fishing spot. Newcomers just walk in like they are walking in the park. New trout fishers that don't have a clue will even plunge right in the water, wearing their brand new hip waders. Is it any wonder they are puzzled when they go home empty-handed after a full day of "trout fishing?" You might not be aware, but the phases of the moon have an effect and you can discover a higher amount of activity when the moon is in its optimal spot during its phases. Evidently, you will have to be fishing out on the water or from a bank, in order to take advantage of it. Weather is another factor that affects fish and trout in particular. You have to know the weather conditions that will impact the dissolved oxygen in the water. In addition, fishing for trout on an entirely clear day, which includes a bright sunny blue sky, can be trickier. The senses of a trout are very finely honed and they can see you and hear you coming much easier than you would think. It is essential for you to make no noise and also not allow them to see you, as they can see you along the banks of the water.
You can find all kind of stuff that you can use while fishing so you can focus more on fishing. It's much better to have bags and other accessories hanging off you when you're in the water, and you want to avoid having the things you need sitting nicely on the bank. You should know that trout can feel you moving, so walking around is not the best thing in the world to do. Your ability to be totally quiet is part of the challenge and it's really a must do thing.
"Now, if you think about it, you'd say they should have hit white or glow or something they can see. They definitely can't see avocado coming through the water, but they feel it. That lateral line picks up the movement." During that particular run, it took Vandenborre a couple of days to discover the pattern. "First, I'd go out a half hour before the sun came out, and we'd catch a few big fish, but as soon as the sun came up, the big fish would quit," he said. "We'd still catch them, but they were all 3- to 5-pound fish. Before you knew it, I was leaving at 3:30 (a.m.)" It was during that spring in 2002 when Vandenborre caught the 10.5-pound speckled trout that still ranks No. 10 in the state. Vandenborre said the pre-dawn, trophy-trout pattern is true not only in Lake Pontchartrain.
