Temperature and fish –

Recommended Equipment

If you’ve read any trout-fish­ing books, you’ve noticed that they always seem to begin with tem­per­a­ture. If you are like me, you’ve skipped them to get to the more ‘improtant’ stuff. 

How­ev­er there is a rea­son they put water tem­per­a­ture at the begin­ning fo the book—It’s because it’s one of the most, if not the most impor­tant thing to know when you are try­ing to fish: If the water is too warm for trout and you don’t know this sin­gu­lar fact, then you will waste your time slap­ping the trout-emp­ty waters, instead of mov­ing on and cov­er­ing more prom­s­ing waters. Just know if the water temp is more then 65º, then its time to move on.

I’ve tried sev­er­al ther­mome­ters and this one seens to fist the bill. Com­pact, stur­dy and has a mag­net to boot for find­ing way­ward tiny flies.
