    Wink Solo Fishing!

    In our upcoming April 2020 issue, we're featuring a piece on one angler's solo fishing checklist. We'd like to know your favourite spots to fish, what species you look for, and any special gear you need. What do your lone trips look like, and where do you like to go?

    I love fishing with my kids and/or my grand kids, but when it comes time to get away on my own I travell with a couple of pack rods. A four piece spinning rod with an ABU Cardinal 3 reel and a four piece 4 weight fly rod. Reel is not important on the fly rod, as it's just a line storage device. I carry a back pack, a one burner stove, frying pan and a Bivouac Tent.
    I'm chasing Brook Trout and usually draft out a loop that might take in a couple of creeks, a river and three or four lakes in the Almaguin Highlands. I have stocking lists and maps dating back to the 50's, but have kept them up to date. It's amazing how many lakes that were once stocked with Specks, are now stocked with Splake, or even worse, rainbows. I guess our pocket lakes are warming up too much to hold Brook Trout now.
    I'll take take three or four days to complete my loop and end up back at the truck. I always go at my speed and never feel rushed.
    One time I got to my first lake (wearing a teeshirt) and there was still ice on the sheltered pond. I could jump out over the two feet of open water and punch a hole in the ice with my fist.
    One tip I will share, when chasing last ice Brookies, fish the shoreline. I had only eight inches of water under the ice and the fishing was great. I think the trout are drawn into the warmer shoreline with insects waking up in the mud.
    Oh ya, you asked about locations! Well I can recommend Lake X and Goinbackagain River.
