Even today, where I predominantly fish jerkbaits in-line spinners still account for the majority of trout I catch.

I have been living in Korea for close to a year, and still could not find the time to check out the trout streams. Which are predominantly on the east coast and are a closely guarded secret.

Rescuing trout from drying pools

Every year, countless trout and other fish get trapped as surface flows dwindle and streams dry. I have been rescuing trapped fish from drying pools since I was a child.

Lakes can be overwhelming at first, simply so much water to fish. I personally ignore the middle of the lake. I can not cast there, so I will not fish…
