While the “Practice makes perfect” train of thought is great when it comes to fishing, we can’t fish as much as we want. If you really want to be a better angler, pick up a book.
Read “Better Bass Fishing” by Robert Montgomery and you will learn more great tips than you would in 50 fishing trips.
Speaking of Bass; check out Doug Hannon and Don Wirth’s 1984 book, Catch Bass! Yes, it is old and yes, it is still a great one to read.
Sure, go ahead and watch American Idol. I will read “Secrets from Florida’s Master Anglers” by Captain Ron Presley instead.
Winter looks like it will stick around a few more weeks. Invest in yourself and read a book or watch a fishing DVD. You can learn a lot about fishing from your easy chair.
