Re: I Can't catch a stocked trout
Found the comments here interesting and simaler to fishing attitudes here in uk for some.
Stocked fish are not fed before delivery as it doesnt help them when travelling.So if they have been fed, they will not be in the fittest state they should be and may take some time to adjust to their new enviroment.Really though bad husbandery to feed before delivery.
Interesting to hear that fish are stocked also in wild rivers as they are here,the days of truly wild wild fish seems to be disappearing,many anglers dont really care they are only interested in catching at all costs which is very sad indeed.Who needs to catch 50 in a day to enjoy it.
I did notice the wild v stocked debate isnt restricted to just the UK.But are we not all anglers in the end and the element of choice remains for us all,the pleasure is the fishing and the enviroment which surrounds it.
