    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    The first bit is you gently stroke the belly slowly but surely moving closer toward the gills. The second bit is as the trout is getting all relaxed you whack your thumb and fore finger, middle finger into each side of the gills and game on.

    These fish will be eating what is alive and abundant in their habitat.
    Look a bit harder and find out what the next step down the food chain is.
    My bet will be midge, water boatman, snails, damsel and dragonflies (might be a bit late in the season for these though) and maybe the odd koura. I would expect they will taste like shit too if this is what they're eating.
    Read the above - best advice so far! Also, try not to let them see you - lower your profile.
