    Default Re: Why not have lure fishing at Farmoor reservoir?

    So you quantify all fishing methods by how effective they are?
    Fair enough, I'll just go and get my Gill Net out of the garage.

    Personally, I'm not a fan of "Flyonlyism", and I really don't see what difference it makes what method you use on stocked Trout waters with limit bags.

    Saying fly fishing is a ***** way of catching fish would suggest to me your not very good at it.

    There’s a great lure fishing forum where you’d be totally at home with like minded anglers.......just saying.

    Lure angling has been around for decades, maybe even centuries. It’s just now we seem to have a new wave of instant lure anglers. Have you tried getting a group of anglers together and negotiating with Farmoor? The trout guys pay a decent amount.

    Well, bait fishing was invented 40,000 years ago. Lauri Rapala invented the first modern lure in 1936.

    I suppose I could call them. But given what they did to the people whose technique started to resemble bait fishing I'm not too optimistic.

    Good luck with that. Farmoor is currently closed.

    You’re not into googling then?

    “Fishing lures have been around since antiquity and were first made out of bone and bronze. The Chinese and Egyptians used fishing rods, hooks, and lines as early as 2,000 B.C.E. The first hooks were made out bronze and were strong and thin. The Chinese were the first to make fishing line, spun from fine silk. The modern fishing lure was made commercially in the United States in the early 1900s by the firm of Heddon and Pflueger in Michigan. Before this time most fishing lures were made by individual craftsman. Commercial-made lures were based on the same ideas used by individual craftsmen but on a larger scale”
