Brown Trout

Fishing for Brown trout

For many, trout fishing is where it all begins when it comes to fly fishing. Many of us began our fishing career with a trout of some form. Brown trout have often been named the king of the trout family. Originally from Europe, the Brown trout is now world wide. Whether it's the rivers of Chili, Lakes of Iceland, or the famous Chalkstreams of southern England, these are one of the world's finest fish.

Where can you fish for Brown trout?

Fishing for Brown trout is done famously in the UK, Argentina, Chili, Africa, and Iceland. All these locations have very different types of fishing, and very different seasons. Call us now and allow us to inform you on all information you may need.

Fishing Tackle for Brown trout

An 8 ft 5 weight is your typical weapon of choice when taking on browns. However, there are many different ways to catch Brown trout. You may be streamer fishing in the Lakes of Iceland for wild brown trout up to 25 lbs; this would require something with a little more power. Or perhaps you are dry fly fishing for the tricky Browns in Montana. Pick up the phone and hear our advice.

Fishing Flies for Brown trout

Brown trout can be caught on a variety of flies; dry flies are most popular. You can also catch Browns on a number of streamers, nymphs, and buzzers.
