It never ceases to amaze me just how many people love fishing. It is, after all, the number one participation “sport” in Australia and men and women, boys and girls of all ages love the experience.
Unfortunately, very few anglers really ever see any success and 8 out of 10 people I meet say something like, “Oh I love fishing but I never catch a thing. I don’t know why, I guess I’m just bad luck.”
You could make a case for luck. I have the occasional bad day myself. When you’re relying on another animal to cooperate with you on your Tuesday off, there’s every chance they’ll be hungrier on Wednesday but surely this can’t always be the case? And it isn’t.
The main reason why most people aren’t catching a fish, or catching only blowfish, is because they’re doing something wrong. Wrong spot, wrong bait, wrong tackle, wrong lure, wrong tide, my word the options for getting it wrong are endless.
It’s a bit like golf really. It’s not an easy sport and plenty of hackers end up frustrated and don’t think twice about turning to lessons from a pro … but why don’t people think to get fishing lessons? I reckon the main reason is because they don’t know that they can!
And that's where we come in.
