What do the fish want today?
There are so many variables changing by the minute: the wind, the temperature, the barometric pressure, your confidence in the lure you tied on that you don't feel like changing even though you're sure it's not going to work.
The puzzle is what keeps me coming back.
A little mind-teaser first thing in the morning can set your pace for the rest of the day. You'll be more engaged to figure out whatever issue comes along.
Like tying on a different lure. If you've lost confidence in it, just change it.
The fish can tell.
Sleeping in is a waste of daylight. Do what you love––go fishing.
