Catching Brook Trout
To catch trout with the fly it is not at all necessary to know that, as a matter of scientific fact, the brook trout is not a trout but a char. Briefly, as regards the Salmonidae, the books of authority recognize the salmon trout and the charr trout, the distinction being founded upon the fact that the charrs have no teeth upon the front of the bone in the roof of the mouth, the contrary being the case with the salmon trout. Of the charrs those most familiar to the angler are the Great Lakes trout, Cristivomer namaycush, the "Namaycush," and fontinalis, Salvelinus meaning "little charr." In this connection it might be well to say that the trout of British angling literature is not our common native trout but the brown trout, Salmo fario, now pretty generally introduced into this country and a true trout, not a charr.
