Basic Facts about Fishing

Every decision that you will make about how you will fish and what you will need to bring with you should be based on the decision of where you are going to fish.

You don’t fish big lakes the same way you fish streams. This is why you want to start your fishing adventure with studying the bodies of water available to you.fishing-at-sunset-209112_960_720

The world of fish to a large degree is hidden from human eyes, but if you start watching the water and paying attention, you will realize that every swirl and splash provides you with information about what is happening below the surface of a body of water. Watching other animals, such as frogs, minnows, and birds will also help you identify where the fish are.

There are hundreds of species of fish that you can catch. While different species prefer different habitats, some of the fish live close to you. Although no two bodies of water are ever exactly the same, they are also alike in terms of what species of fish they will have. Freshwater streams are similar no matter where you go. What you learn in one location will help you get experience and get better at fishing the next location.

You want to learn to look for water that has both access and fish.

The best water for fishing can be public or private. Public water is typically governed by rules of a local municipality and you need to learn about these rules. If the water is private, you need to ask owners for permission to fish. Not doing so is illegal.

Getting access to a body of water doesn’t mean that it will have fish. Sometimes large bodies of water have tiny populations of fish and occasionally it works in the opposite way. The only way to know is to study the body of water.
