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.
