Next, you want to make sure you have the right equipment. You are going to need to have a hand net when you go trout fishing. Landing the trout is not always easy, especially if you have never done it so you need a net. Trout will easily break the line when you are pulling them from the water and if you don’t use the net, they may break away and get loose. This is bad for you and for the trout because he may swim away with your hook and line still in him.
A haemostat is another great thing to have for removing swallowed hooks. You might also want to have waterproof boots or waders in case you have to go in the water a ways. A fishing vest is awesome because you can keep all of your essentials right on your person and easily within reach. Of course, you are going to need a rod and reel as well.
The type that you use to prepare for trout fishing will depend on different factors. For example, an inexpensive spin-cast style rod and reel work perfectly fine but if you plan to be fishing for large trout, you will want to make sure you get one strong enough to withstand the weight. However, if you really get into your trout fishing, you may want something a bit more advanced. There are ultra-light rods that are flexible, cast easier and also make it easier to tell when you have a bite. You can feel your strike much more easily in a light rod.
You can also look for rods that are 6-61/2 feet to allow for better casting and make it easier to use a float (which many people enjoy using while trout fishing). There are also ultra-light spinning reels that are designed especially for light line such as the 4-pound test.
You also need to know your angle and technique. The funny thing about trout is that there is no technique that works all the time every time. What works for you one day, may not on another. You have to learn to adjust and mix it up as needed for you.
