Would you like to learn the secrets of how to catch more trout than most angers think is possible? If so, you won't want to miss Frank Nale's slide program on fishing spinners for wild trout. Frank is from Blair County and casts his homemade lures on 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, and accountant, has been a dedicated spinner fisherman and Trout Unlimited member since 1979 and has logged over 18,000 hours casting spinners. During the last 35 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 240,000 trout in streams open to free public angling, including over 100,000 trout in the last ten years. While many anglers would consider catching a dozen trout in a day a stellar outing, Frank has averaged over tweleve trout per hour during the last twenty years.
In addition to his 50-minute slide presentation, Frank 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 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. So why not join us for an enjoyable evening of trout talk and camaraderie. Admission is free. You'll be glad you came.
