Fly fishing takes months to learn and a lifetime to master.  It's a deep commitment in both time and money.  For some reason it seams that most images we see of someone stream fishing for trout includes a bearded man holding a fly rod with a pile of slack line laying in the water in front of him, concentrating on the precise placement of his fly.

In reality you can have just as much success trout fishing with spinning tackle.  A few spinners and the fishing rod you've owned since you were eight years old are all you really need to catch trout in most North American trout streams.  If you love the challenge and skill it takes to be a successful fly fisherman, by all means, go for it!

SpinnerFishingForTrout.com was created by a fisherman to share the enjoyment that can be had fishing for trout using the same tackle you might use for panfish or crappie.  Here, you'll find helpful advice and resources to help you catch more trout without having to beat the bushes (literally!) to find out what hatch is happening this week.

And remember, even if you don't catch a thing a bad day fishing beats a good day at work!
