The Golden Ticket
So we now rear the beautiful Golden trout, this is a story of love and hate (or dislike).
Love of the sight of these majestic animals gliding in the glistening water, the excitement the thrill when it surfaces and realise you really have hooked something special and different.
Dislike from the fisherman that says they look like goldfish or golden orfe (they don't) and have no interest in catching a "ornamental fish".
Although they are harder to farm than the bog standard Rainbow trout, here at Torre we really have taken to them and there seems to be a cunning escapee in most ponds!
Whether you chose to release, keep or even fish for these magical trout the choice is yours, but if your lucky enough to catch one and pose for a photo you will always remember catching that Golden ticket.
