    Although Woody could you please explain exactly what your interpretation of "great unwashed" is?

    The main thing I have against trout fishing is you have to pay those fish and game wankers for a licence.
    Well @7mmwsm you clearly haven't eaten south island high country trout
    Caught and cooked fresh
    Floured and fryed in butter
    Absolutely fantastic

    I especially like to catch and cook the first of the day in the lake or river side.
    Carry the jet boil and frypan
    Then a cup of jet boil coffee
    Life is good

    Actually even better is a fire in the beach and planked trout fillets.
    Find some flatish drift wood and whittle some sharp pegs to hold the skin down on the plank.
    Place by fire where its just to hot for your hand.
    Eat off the plank when cooked

    Great way to warm up when winter lake fishing

    @7mmwsm.
    Trout fishing is an art form, modt especially in clean crisp rivers. Grin @Gibo. Yes, some sea critters will eat trout sized baits but interestingly an analysis done on Marlin gut content revealed 90+% of their food was around pilchard sized; much like the trout diet comprising very small insects and nymphs.
    Like trout, sea fish taken from very clean water generally are best eating.

    Actually. Tickling trout and salmon is an even higher art form than fly fishing IMHO.

    Old memory is nothing flash @rewa. On a forestry trip in BC years ago we were well up a river from Quesnel. There were some Indian boys snagging salmon with handlines and big treble hooks. We gave them a demo on tickling salmon. I was surprised they had no knowledge of that method til wr showed them

    @akaroa1 @Woody
    You appear to have inserted thoughts into my comments which were not there in this instance.
    I have eaten trout in most of these conditions. I enjoy fly fishing in mountain streams and rivers. Winter lake fishing doesn't do anything for me.
    I find quite a few fly fishers consider themselves purists and they presume they are a peg or two above the rest of us. And frequently they get all bitter and twisted when some one takes the piss out of them.
    Nowhere did I state that trout were horrible to eat, but I would much rather eat snapper. All I stated was that trout were ok for bait. My comments were tongue in cheek and although my description of F&G may be a bit harsh, they haven't done anything recently to make me think any differently.
