Are there any fishing secrets anymore? You know, those bits of knowledge that only a few know and can drastically increase one’s hookup ratio. The difference between learning new techniques and a fishing secret depends on who you’re asking. It’s hard to imagine anglers don’t have secrets that they’ll take to the grave while it’s equally hard to imagine an angler giving up every trick in the book. Now it may have taken some time to learn those fishing secrets and to give them up so readily isn’t an option but pointing the lad in the right direction at least leaves it up to them to stumble across what some may call a “fishing secret”. Gauging whether or not someone is worthy of such knowledge is difficult when on a fishing forum for reason there are those whom could care less about the fish or fishery. Some good old fashioned research and more time out on the water makes discovering those fishing secrets more likely. Unfortunately, I see many anglers think if they ask nice you’ll catch them up to speed. Thank god it doesn’t work that way and would encourage some solid input if you have it. Helping your fellow angler succeed is good etiquette and good karma. Are there any fishing secrets anymore? Plenty of secrets out there that I hope to learn. Tighlines fellas!
