    Fish the autumn spawn for South Carolina’s favorite fall trout.

    The late Frank Young, a man with whom I talked and fished from boyhood days right up until his death, knew streams in the high country with an intimacy few will ever match.

    The Charleston area offers all kinds of hiding places for doormat-sized flatfish.

    With fall fishing for redfish and speckled trout going full-bore, it’s not hard to imagine that some fishermen might ignore or entirely forget the lowly flounder this month.
