Fishing Fun

I love to go fishing. I also love writing. So, I had to find a way combined the two. My typical plan is to alternate fishing and writing. Seems to work pretty well for me. Maybe you are interested in trying it as well, but don’t know where to start. Below are some tips to get you started with fishing.

When you are ready to go fishing, wear clothes that blend in with where you are going to be. Bright colors will scare the fish away since they are not colorblind. Try addressing in earthy colors like browns and muted greens.

If you plan to fish with live bait, make sure you use a bobber on your line. When you have live bait on the line, it can make it hard to tell when a fish is biting, so a bobber will give you a better idea of when to reel it in. Find a bobber that easily on top of the water. Also, make sure you don’t leave your live bait in the sun for an extended period of time. My guy over at gutter repair Smyrna swears by pulling the live bait up every 45 seconds. Fish tend to prefer food that is cooler rather than hot. It is best to keep your live bait in an insulated cooler before using it to fish with.

Try to find an area with deep water status were fish tend to stay on hot sunny days. Rivers are known to have ruts and trenches, so shouldn’t be hard to find one. Large rocks and ledges also attract fish. If you go out and find a good fishing spot, note it on your map so you can come back to it in the future.

Having the proper knowledge of fishing can help you reel in the big one. Then, you can get back to your work of writing. Perhaps you will even write about your fishing adventures.

Camping 101

One of my favorite things to do when I have a writing assignment is camping. Camping is a blast in my opinion. If you are a little nervous about going camping if come to the right spot. All you really need is some confidence and a little good advice to get you going. This article will give you camping tips to help you on your trip.

Get reservations to your camping spot as soon as you can. Many people enjoy going camping with their families, especially in the summer. A guy I know over at movers near me goes with his family every summer a few times. If you are able to reserve your Spot in the winter, it greatly increases your chances of getting a good spot at a great rate. Saving money can help you have more fun while on your vacation.

Be sure to take along some wood to help you with your campfire. It’s possible that only would you can find at the campsite is wet, so it will not burn. By bringing your own supply, you will build to get that fire up and going quickly.

If you have children camping with you, bring along a few shovels for them to play with. My kids have always enjoyed playing in the dirt at the campsite. If your vehicle has enough room, you can also bring them a bucket and other toys to help keep them entertained for hours. This will give you the time you need to get your camping gear unpacked, set up your tent, and do all the other things you need to do for settling in.

As you schedule your campsite, be sure to ask about a water supply. You may have to walk some to find water but, then again, your campsite may have water nearby. Be sure to bring something to carry water with you if you are going on a hike while camping. You may also want to consider packing iodine tablets if you’re hiking a long distance. That way, you can treat any water before drinking it and help prevent dysentery.

See, doesn’t that sound simple? Hopefully, that little bit of basic knowledge has given you the confidence you need to start planning your next camping trip. Oh, and don’t forget your writing gear. You may enjoy the outdoor so much on your camping trip that you forget to write.
