A word of advice. If you ever get invited to go on a fishing trip of a lifetime time, do what you can to make it happen. I recently was invited to float the infamous Smith River in Montana. It was a squeeze for me to make it, but I knew I could not pass up this opportunity. To afford the flights I went to Craigslist to see what I could get rid of. After a few weeks, and a less crowded closest, I had sold enough to afford the flights. The rest would go down in history.
Do you ever find yourself going back to the same fishing spot over and over again? Sometime I feel it’s hard to break away from the tried-and-true fishing areas. But, when you do, it can really pay off. This past weekend I decided to try a new area that I have never fished before. After some time struggling to figure out how to catch the fish, I ended up having one of my best days on the water.
