Edward Island offers 1,100 miles of coastline, deeply indented with
many estuaries and bays. There are few natural
lakes, however there are more than 800 artificial ponds, many originally
constructed as mill ponds. The streams themselves are short and
spring fed; most originating from springs that discharge 7 C water in
summer and winter. As a result, streams on Prince Edward Island are
less dependent upon surface run-off and maintain good flows, even in
well-stocked PEI pond is the best classroom for teaching a young angler
the finer points of trout fishing. Casting and retrieve methods can
be easily taught from the bank, and pond fish will bite more readily
than their larger-water cousins.
Most of the Brook trout flies are tied on hooks
sizes from 10-16. Some of the more common fresh water trout flies
include: royal coachman, dark montreal, white wulff, woolly worm,
muddler minnow light and dark Cahill, and variations of the mosquito.
Fly variations and patterns unique to the Island can be discovered
through local anglers.
