How to learn to love small fish again

For Utah’s WASATCH FRONT & MDASH; excessive developed, drought, and general disregard of traffic law; if you are a catfish fishing man, this is an excellent place for life.River and streams are only a few minutes away from big cities and towns, and catfish are always closer to 20 inches.It is the kind of fishing fish.

It must have spoiled me.

I moved from the front of Wasatic in Wyoming to the bottom of the Bighorn Mountains.I traded a deal, terrible drivers, terrible winter reversal and high -price skiing, to relatively unfinished landscapes in northern Wyoming.The SHOSHONE River, part of the big horn Montana and Kasper’s North Prate within a few hours in my new place.I can ski at a local resort at a price of $ 45 every day. I found a house I can actually afford (the west is rare today).The recent catfish stream has been in less than half an hour.

At first glance, it is the perfect stream.The lower part is all the pocket water, and Lu Re’s falling one of the most beautiful canyons in the West.The upper part is dotted with grass, deep swimming pools and urgent Brook catfish, almost willing to fly.

After the first visit, I should not leave the stream.I hatred I feel this.However, after many years of big catfish spoiled, I turned my nose to the small fish living in the new home.Moving to Wyoming is definitely the right career, but I just felt some accusations in order to leave such an excellent fishing in Utah.

Just like I said & mdash; I was spoiled.Because I often oppose the Instagram culture that seems to only celebrate the big fish, but I did not consciously acknowledge this fact.

However, in the past few months, what I want to re -discover is that the small fish should get the same love as the elder brother.Although they may not test your resistance, small catfish will bring their own series of unique challenges.

Accurate casting

Small catfish usually live in smaller streams. This is an exact water. Fortunately, it can only be a few minutes from my front door.Fish tends to gather in a calm water bottle, especially when the traffic is low at the end of the cruel and hot summer.Good drift in these pockets requires excellent casting.Of course, it will not win a reward of the award, but it will force you to become very accurate.The creek circulation is often crowded with a hanging brush, which means that you need to keep the flies away from the trees, if you can change them every time.

I think it is easier to make short casts accurately than actors, but mechanics are basically the same.If you are accurate at close range, I think you can also shoot a good shot when you are accurate.

Time hook

Set up a hook is about the timing, and how important it is to teach you how important it is.Although they often hook anything about themselves in the fanaticism, it is easy to put hooks in too early and completely miss the fish.Or, you will eventually stain it and may kill the poor things.

Although this is a different time compared to the big fish you are accustomed to, and the fish of fishing in fishing has strengthened the need to respond properly when fish flies.It is easy to drive autonomous driving, especially if you often fish the same water.Xiaoyu needs to keep paying attention because you never know how they seize your flies.

Good drift

Even if they are famous for their cautiousness, they can still emit a good drift from a bad catfish.Usually, the difference between a beautiful day and the beautiful day of capturing the small fish is attributed to drift.I watched some catfish in my new stream; the entire five -inch long & mdash; rejected my stem flies because its resistance was too great.


As the legendary character Gary Borger explained, the big fish provided the fishermen with the opportunity to "pretend to be true".In Garry’s words,

Remember the old saw, is "practical perfect"?Guess what to do?If a person only does wrong, then one person will only be completely wrong.Instead of seeing a small fish as troubles, or a waste of good fishing time, they regard them as an excellent opportunity for training skills to learn from errors and practice.For example, the cat learned to hunt the cubs through the rear of the nearest adult GNU through the rear of the nearest adult GNU.The female cat brings a small game, which is usually injured game for the bear "practice".They learn to get large games through the necessary skills to develop small games.

In a good actor lineup, the time of time of the hook suit, and get a good drift, the catfish needs of the fishingman is as many as the big fish.However, maybe their best qualities are their ability to remind fishermen’s true important things.Fishing experience.Capture small catfish is usually easy, but it is always interesting.It will never smile on my face.Therefore, even if your local catfish stream is full of hindrance stream catfish, and you pass it to the longer water "better" water, I suggest you re -examine the small fish again.Maybe they will remind you like me. We are lucky and lucky to fish completely. We should not think of it for granted.
