    River Habits

    With the New Year upon us we are all looking to new Year resolutions.
    Some will be to loose weight, others will to quite smoking and as for me I will try to get rid of my river habits.
    That nasty little thing that creep into you casting during the hours of fishing.
    My worst habit is going to fast
    What is yours?
    :cool:

    sort of related but mine is going to another run ,then another ,quite often rather than fishing the same run somewhat differently or changing up. Take alot of hands and fingers to count the fish I have hit, not on the 1st, but on the 2nd or 3rd pass thru a great piece of water. Knowing this though, I still often want to go fish here or there next instead of staying put.

    My other resolution would be to make it down to your place more often.

    My worst habit is forgetting to refill my flask before I go out. :rofl:

    Actually, my worst habit is not concentrating on the basics of the cast and rushing things when I'm fishing.

    I turn around and go home if I discover this problem when I get there. One can forget alot of seemingly essential items but the flask?-- no the flask is unacceptable to forget or fill:beathead:

    New years resolutions? Hmmmm, I figure that I forgot to make one before the new year, so I'll have to wait 'til next time.:confused:

    Actually, as much as I love fishing the local lakes, I'm determined to spend most my time time on a river. I am also going to buy a saltwater license this year for the first time and begin hitting the salt.

    Simplify my fishing techniques. I have 43 rods, 37 reels, and enough gear to stock a medium tackle shop. I am covered from bluegill to tuna. I'm definately not a fish, gear, or technique snob! It seems that everywhere I go fishing in the hemisphere, I have to buy all the gear. Now I want to get into a 2 hander fly rod. I think I need more willpower....

    Based on what I kept hearing the last time I went to a Saturday on the River, I am going too fast as well.

    "Slow down, loosen up, you are going to fast...";)

    I'd like to stop eating very large green salads the night before I fish and then forget to bring T.P. Also, I'd like like to not rush my cast and quit being lazy with the cast as time wears on through the day of fishing.
