Fishing Tackle, Strategy, Maps & How-To's

The average fishing trip for me lasts around 4-6 hours. The amount of preparation time I spend before those hours is exponentially greater. These preparations often include online research, buying/reading fishing books, talking to the local tackle shop employees, watching far too many YouTube fishing videos, leader tying and final trip preparations. For the love of that exponential preparation time, I’ve created this site and these tips to document those learning’s. I hope they help you plan/prepare well so you’re getting more out of your fishing trips.
