Bad, Bad Martin Brown

Don't know if he's badder than old King Kong and meaner than a junkyard dog, but saw this article about "Martin Brown's Trout Bait" in a Google news feed today. Good luck with the secret bait Martin, tight lines!

On The Trail Of Big Trout
Martin Brown knows how to reel in trout; it's all in his secret bait

Fishermen will throw everything but the kitchen sink into a body of water; each one swearing that his or her own choice of lures and bait is the end all and be all of angling.

Martin Brown spent 10 years finding his own infallible bait: dough.

"I used to throw bread in the water to get the fish to come around and I used to see a lot of Bosnians using sourdough to catch fish," Brown said. "So I just started trying out different things until I found something the trout liked."

"Fishing makes people happy, you could have no money and walk up to someone, give them a ball of this stuff and see them start catching fish. That makes me happy, too."
