My take on this: the sooner you get out there after the stocking truck is done the better, before the locals take all the fish home!
I’ve seen this on three blogs already this morning so it must be worth re-posting here. Bloodknot magazine has an interview with April Vokey, steelhead fisher-woman extraordinaire (steelhead have to be the anti-small stream brook trout).
I’m not sure what to think of this interview. I think it’s time to give the whole “you’re sexy and what about that?” thing a rest. This woman catches a lot of huge fish and makes a living doing this. Obviously she is credible and accomplished. Shouldn’t that be enough?
