Several of us are keen fly fishers and others are keen on using lures to catch trout.
We spend a lot of time writing about the best ways to catch trout and about the various types of trout, which we’ve summarised below.

Trout are a fascinating fish that come in a range of subspecies. They are found in a wide range of countries – across the United States and Canada, throughout much of Europe as well as South America, Australia and New Zealand, Japan and even Africa.
They are a prized target for people who enjoy fly fishing in particular, but for anglers of all types.
