Enjoy Outdoor Activities
If you are an outdoor kind of person, who enjoys all types of outdoor activities, you must know how much fun can be had when you are on a camping or fishing expedition. However, there are so many people who are oblivious of the fun that can be had on an outdoor adventure and this article is being written especially for them. This article is for you, if you know nothing about fishing.Fishing can be so much fun for men, as it acts as a bonding force between friends and, fathers and sons. However, one needs to understand the fundamentals of fishing before going on a fishing trip. So here is a fishing guide for clear water fishing for all those who have either never been fishing or have been failures at it.Fishing can turn out to be a disaster, if one does not know how to go about it. I don't know if fish are smart, but one thing is certain, they can see. So, if you put bait on a hook in a bid to tempt the fish to it, you will have to keep waiting till eternity, as no fish will take your bait if it can see the fishing gear. If they see the hook and the line they will sensibly avoid the temptation. This move will be good for them, but not so good for you.What you need to do is to lean to cheat the fish. It is simple, cut down the size of the bait and camouflage the line and the fishing gear. Easy said, but how do you do it? Camouflage the equipment like the army men do. Use colors that are not conspicuous and merge with the surrounding area. Use a transparent line, believe me this is the easiest way to outsmart the fish.Another trick is to keep moving the bait, so that it looks natural, and the fish is drawn to it. Don't let the fishing line hang from above, keep it as low to the surface as possible. Let it all look as natural as possible. Make use of the natural lightening to your advantage. Go fishing when the skies are overcast, chances are the fish will not notice the rod in the cloudy weather. Go fishing at dawn or just before dusk, the bad light will be to your advantage. Cast your bait with the sun behind you, this is another trick to camouflage the fishing gear. Windy weather is perfect for fishing in clear water as it creates ripples, which conceals the gear.Once the fish takes the bait, you need to act fast so that you ensure the fish gets hooked and has no chance of escaping. Follow these simple tricks and you will become an expert at clear water fishing. A word of caution though; fishing is highly addictive, especially once you begin hooking them easily.
