3 Habits of Highly Successful Trout Fishermen

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 232

I have been fishing for trout for more than two decades and in that time have learned that there are certain traits that all highly successful trout fishermen have in common and in this article I will reveal these habits so that you can add them to your repertoire as this trout season gets underway. These 3 habits aren't anything new per say, but they are something that all highly successful trout fishermen have in common, there's no doubt about that.

But, before we get down to the habits themselves it's important to explain what it is that makes a highly successful trout fisherman. Trout fishermen that are highly successful take the act of fishing for trout much more seriously than your average fisherman and therefore tend to be able to catch trout virtually any time that they head out onto the water. If catching trout virtually anytime that you head out onto the water is something that interests you then try to make the following 3 habits a part of your trout fishing routine as soon as you can.

  1. Mindfulness - All highly successful trout fishermen are extremely mindful when it comes to the act of trout fishing. This means that they stay focused on the present moment and the task at hand. When they are fishing for trout they are thinking about the trout they are about to catch, rather than what they are going to do later that day or what movie they would like to see that weekend. When tying knots, baiting hooks, or making casts these fishermen have their minds focused on exactly what they are doing and nothing else.
  2. Being on The Water at The Best Times - For a majority of anglers the best time to go fishing is "anytime that you can", but highly successful trout fishermen (and fishermen in general) know that certain times of the day, week, and month are much more conducive to catching fish than others and these anglers plan their fishing excursions around these times. Of all of the trout fishing habits being outlined in this article this might be the most overlooked, yet the most important.
  3. Patience - Although listing patience might seem like some sort of cop out when it comes to fishing the habit nonetheless needs to be mentioned. Highly successful trout fishermen are almost unnaturally patient creatures, often fishing a single "hole" or stretch of river for over an hour without as much as a bite when the trout aren't cooperating. For example, I have been known to fish for the same trout in the same stretch of river for long periods, until which time as I hook the trout. The bottom line is that developing uncommon patience is undoubtedly a habit of all highly successful trout fishermen.

If any of the aforementioned habits aren't something that you currently possess and you would like to be a highly successful trout fisherman (or woman) I would suggest that you get to work at making said habit a part of your trout fishing arsenal sooner rather than later.
