Even the old, proven guns of the sport are following these trends. If you want to get better at this sport here are the keys to success:-First you have to love to fish. That means you fish on the great days as well as the bad, whether its rain, snow or sleet, hot or cold.-Find anglers that are better then you and fish with them. Be open minded when learning new tactics.-Practice, practice, practice!-Work out, even if its just walking and stretching.-Do things that test your mind, as under stress it will help with concentration and decision making.-Fish at levels you can compete in and do well in and only move up when they no longer present a challenge.-Every year work on one thing you are not confident in until you master it.
