“Spin Fishing For Trout” Seminar
Presentation by Frank R. Nale
On Monday, May 13th, at 7:00 p.m., I will be doing my “Spin Fishing For Trout” PowerPoint presentation for the Penn’s Woods West Chapter of Trout Unlimited. The meeting will be held at Christ Church at Grove Farm in the Barn in Sewickley, Pennsylvania, which is north of Pittsburgh. To get there, take the Mount Nebo exit off of Route 79. The address is 249 Duff Road, Sewickley, PA 15143.
They will have a brief business meeting first; I’m scheduled to start at approximately 7:30 p.m.
Would you like to learn the secrets of how to catch more trout than most anglers think is possible? If so, you won’t want to miss my new PowerPoint program on fishing spinners for wild trout. I am from Blair County (Tipton) and cast my 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,…
…and the other things I enjoy while streamside besides catching trout.
I’m a retired accountant and have been a dedicated spinner fisherman and Trout Unlimited member since 1979. I’ve logged nearly 24,000 hours casting spinners. During the last 40 years I have learned and perfected many of the little things that it takes to be successful and will be sharing them with you. My proven technique has helped me catch and release over 291,000 trout in Pennsylvania streams open to free public angling, including an average of over 10,000 trout per year for the last twenty-three years. While many anglers would consider catching a dozen trout in a day a stellar outing, I have averaged over twelve trout per hour during the last thirty-one years. (This is not meant to be bragging; these are my credentials.)
In addition to my one-hour slide presentation, which will feature new photographs, I will give a brief casting demonstration followed by a question and answer period. A handout, “SPIN FISHING FOR WILD TROUT -- Tackle, Tips & Technique” lists the critical points of my program and will be given to everyone. Also, for those interested, a handout showing in detail the parts necessary for constructing homemade spinners, as well as a handout listing the necessary parts for assembling your own spinning rod, 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, I guarantee my tips will help you bring more trout, both stocked and wild, to hand. Even people who don’t fish have enjoyed this presentation. So why not join us for an enjoyable evening of trout talk and camaraderie. Admission is free. You’ll be glad you came.
