“It sure beats sitting home watching TV”


A Virginia angler is trying to stop a unique fishing technique…….following the hatchery truck.

Corbin Beach, an 86-year old from Roanoke, is one of those truck followers.

Beach and his buddies gather at Hanging Rock to wait for the hatchery truck from Paint Bank to go by. When it arrives, they fall in behind it convoy style and follow it to its stocking destination. Once the location is determined, the truck followers can alert their buddies .

It is a festive occasion, and can involve someone bringing a camp stove to cook trout on the stream bank. It sure beats sitting home watching TV, Beach said.
