In my world, lure fishing is a puzzle. A puzzle solved not so much in the tackle
shop, but out on the bank and later at home inside what I like to think of as my
brain. Pete and I have spent countless hours over the last ten or more years arguing
the toss over things that ultimately didn’t make any difference to either our catches
or our enjoyment, but every so often something evolves that does make a difference.
Our catches have gone from three fish being a bumper day to a dozen fish being a
poor one and annually blanks can now be counted on the fingers of one hand without
having to take our shoes and socks off. This additional series of articles will be
included on my blog pages as and whenever I have something to say that I believe
might either help someone catch more fish or point them in the direction of something
that will. It is me thinking out loud, and I accept no responsibility for the fact
that a lot of it will turn out to be total balls. Hopefully on the way you may find
a nugget or two that helps.
