Studying the contours of thelake you are fishing, and getting your gear ready and selecting thelures based on the diets of the fish you are after. And havingconfidence in your ability to use and put into action yourlearning's, and to be able to adapt to any situation or condition bydoing your homework, its just pure confidence.
Positiveanglers catch lots of fish and not only that, they are more relaxedand more mindful of safety issues and so on. But most importantPositive anglers catch more fish, and have the most fun.

Ifind that that by having control of my emotions in the boat lets meenjoy the outdoors more, I see more of it. I am not just staring atthe water waiting for the strike, heck after a while one might justfall in the water because of staring at it so long. I also have amore calm approach to unhooking my fish, and I am sure the fish likethat. Slowing downand taking your time allows for better more accurate casts, betterdecision making, and better choices all around. It is far more safeand fun because you are not worried and nervous, about when you'regoing to catch your fish. You just know your going to catch them, andit's that confidence in your abilities that makes a big difference.Doing your homework and thinking and using your head to make goodchoices will lead to many fish being caught, and winning a tournamentor two or three.
