Would you like to learn the secrets of how to catch more trout than most anglers think is possible? If so, you wonít want to miss Frank Naleís PowerPoint program on fishing spinners for wild trout. Frank is from Blair County and casts his homemade lures in large streams such as the Little Juniata River, Penns Creek, and Spring Creek in Centre County, as well as numerous small streams, both limestone and freestone. This fast-paced program will cover proper spin fishing tackle, correct technique, stream selection, and the other things he enjoys while streamside besides catching trout.
Frank, a retired accountant, has been a dedicated spinner fisherman and Trout Unlimited member since 1979 and has logged over 23,000 hours casting spinners. During the last 39 years he has learned and perfected many of the little things that it takes to be successful and he will be sharing them with you. His proven technique has helped him catch and release over 279,000 trout in streams open to free public angling, including an average of over 10,000 trout per year for the last twenty-two years. While many anglers would consider catching a dozen trout in a day a stellar outing, Frank has averaged over twelve trout per hour during the last thirty years.
In addition to his one-hour slide presentation, which will feature new photographs, Frank will give a brief casting demonstration followed by a question and answer period. A handout, ďSPIN FISHING FOR WILD TROUT -- Tackle, Tips & TechniqueĒ lists the critical points of his program and will be given to everyone. Also, for those interested, a handout showing in detail the parts necessary for constructing homemade spinners will be available.
For anglers who already use spinners, you will not want to miss this chance to take your spin fishing to the next higher level. For bait and fly anglers, Frank guarantees his tips will help you bring more trout, both stocked and wild, to hand. Even people who donít fish have enjoyed Frankís presentation. So why not join us for an enjoyable evening of trout talk and camaraderie. Youíll be glad you came.
