Brown trout winter fishing in Estonia

Greetings from Europe!

Brown trout fishing is quite popular here in Estonia, but not so popular in winter.
Season started on 1. February (and will close on 15. September).
My nicest fish from opening day (and possibly the biggest for the season for me):



I have also some videos on my YT site: https://www.youtube.com/user/alarichallika

Lovely fish and a beautiful location you have there, i'd be investing in a landing net.

Stunning scenery - and ditto the landing net advice - My hands get cold enough fishing out live bait in an Australian Winter - I can only imagine how tough it is when its been snowing and you have to carry on with wet hands

Yeah, wet hands are often a problem in winter.
Lowest temperature I have fished for brown trout with spinning is -28c. Only a handful of rivers in Estonia that have a lot of springs, don't freeze (the one on that video also).
Sometimes it is ok without gloves when temperature is -10-15c, but then there has to be no wind and air humidity must be low.

Regarding the landing net - I have it and I have used it a lot. But when I'm not planning to release the fish, then I usually take them out by hand. And as You could see from the video I wasn't very gentle with that fish also - it will go to my gold-smoking oven tomorrow
And if someone is shocked because of no "C&R", no need to panic. We don't have a limit for trouts that can be taken. Only minimum size must be at least 36 cm. Brown trout is one of the most common fish besides pike and perch in our rivers. And most of it is 100% "wild" - there is no introduction by fish farming etc.

One nice video also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGWrhwJAmlU
My friend in that video is 195 cm tall, so You can imagine the snow depth

Jeez they must breed them tough in Estonia - I've researched for many hours trying to find the perfect fishing glove to brave the 4c overnight winter temp in Melbourne Australia Cold wet hands are something I cant abide.

In winter I spend hours chasing fish that may or not be there, so the little things start gnawing away at you after a while - funnily enough if you catch a fish you dont notice the cold hands - but on those fishless nights - I thank the lord for hand warmers stuffed inside possum fur gloves
