Terminal Tackle:


Chasing big trout requires more than a bit of luck and good judgement there’s a need to have total faith in terminal tackle if you’re to consistently land fish.  Supple with abrasion resistant qualities I found Orvis Superstrong in 4X (6.2lb) and 3X (8.5lb) outstanding.  This might sound heavy duty tippet by our standards, but believe me it was more than warranted… 







Equally, to prevent trout from reaching their preferred bolt holes, strong hooks are necessary.  For my money they don’t come any better than the Fulling Mill competition heavyweight and super heavyweight grub models which helped me lever many a solid trout out of a tight spot.  Tried and thoroughly tested, not a single one opened out…
