Never fry bacon in the nude :thumb:
I just people would learn to merge in this damn state! And I'm from here...
That's a good one! I'll try it on my upcoming trip if I need too! :thumb:
Same applies to steelheading or any fishing. Start in close and work your way out farther and down. Wade out slowly and be a stealthy as possible! Hard to to for me at 290 lbs, but possible!
When fishing lakes, depth first. After that I would go profile (includes size) and then color.
Never leave fish to find fish. (I can't tell you the number of times I've done this).
i agree completely.:thumb:
wear a wading belt and always bring a change of (warm) clothes.
Wading belt with CO2 PFD and a collapsible wading staff for the big stuff!
Warren, there must be a story behind this? :rofl:
I guess that almost changes the rule that "everything goes better with bacon"! Unless you're naked for a good reason and just need to recharge...
No matter what the weather is when you leave to go fishing, always bring a rain jacket.
Always, always, always bring a spare pair of skimmys:thumb:
If you are fighting a fish and he gets tangled in underwater sticks/roots, just give him some slack and wait a while. I've fought 2 nice trout on light tippet and this tip hasn't failed me yet!
For you desert wanders, watch out for rattlers down by the water and also up in the bushes! Thats where they cool themselves.
For you steelheaders, check your hook and leader after every snag on the bottom, even if it comes off easily. Sharpen your hook and replace your leader with a passion! You won't regret it. And don't leave a run unless you feel you've covered it well.
Make sure the flask is full before a long venture on foot.
Ya, most of the folks here are terrible at merging for some reason... Isn't it weird how certain areas are good/bad at certain aspects of driving?
my tip: now and then when the fish don't seem to be biting, I do something crazy. Like strip a humpy underwater right up the river for example. I figure that half the "gear" lures out there work based on the concept that fish will strike things that simply trigger some sort of instinct, not because they recognize it as a specific subspecies of mayfly or whatever. I have had just enough success with this to keep me trying it when times are desperate.
Another point ....Laminate your fishing liscense and parking permit....:thumb:
Ah! Here's another tip:
The more you're on the internet, the less fish you will catch.
