I’d like to think of trout as the family fish. Because they group up and aren’t as technical as our other gamefish. It’s always been a great fish to target with the kids. They are abundant and cooperative and willing to snatch most offerings anglers provide.
They’re abundant on the same turtle grass flats as redfish so that they provide a great opportunity as well as beautiful surroundings. In fact, for a beginning fly fisher they’re the perfect target. This is why I enjoy hunting them. I like seeing new fly fishers as well as experienced fresh water anglers build they’re confidence with this cooperative species. By the way, they hit hard.
