Fishing Haters?
If you want to have a good time at the water...avoid those who hate it.

If it isn't peaceful and fun it's not fishing. Keep the grumpy cuss at home. I took this guy out to a remote fishing location for a video shoot on how to fish with a bobber-jig outfit.

Reading water is incredibly easy when you know subtle nuances that make ideal holding water, and it doesn’t matter how clear or turbid the water is; it’s easy to find fish. Anglers can expect to see “fish sign” in water that has zero visibility and what it takes to get them to snap at offerings using their other senses.
