So you want to be a better angler?



B'n M's Excellent DVD

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.

Think of it this way for a second. How would you like to crappie fish with Ronnie Capps and Steve Coleman or maybe Jim Duckworth or Wally Marshall? You can do it for the price of 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.

Do you prefer to pick up your fishing tips from the television? Then check out Jim Duckworth’s DVD selections. Be sure to look up B’n M’s “Anytime, Anywhere, Any water Crappie!” too.

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.

Blessings, TJ

    Time on the water doesn’t always lead to better fishing…it’s combining on the water “practice” with off the water preparation. You can read your way to better fishing. Those titles you posted are great reads!

    Thanks Steve. It’s so darn easy to get great information. Hope you are staying warm up there. (I’m beginning to doubt this “Global Warming thing.) 🙂
