Do you want to see what
I see? Do you want to know what I know?
Do you want to catch more fish than you ever thought
Part of successful fishing is being able to “read
water”. Look at the photograph. Can you “see” fish
just beneath the surface? You’d be surprised at how often anglers
cannot see a single fish. The science and art of reading water is far
easier than you might think. It’s possible to fish waters with
zero visibility once you know what to look for. You’ll be able
to figure out where to fish and why fish are holding in any reach of
I'm getting a lot of emails about this photo and thought it would make
it easier to show exactly how many fish are in the photo. In the above
photo see how many fish you can spot. Think you can spot them all? Mouse
over the image to see red dots identify just how many fish there are.
It's amazing to me that most fishermen end up seeing far more after
I show them how to spot fish. Try to remember that when looking for
fish you won't see the exact outline you might find in a drawing. Surface
undulations make it virtually impossible to see a perfect outline, that's
where the art of reading water comes into play. This is but a single
example of what it takes to spot fish.

A brief example of Reading Water and what it means for increasing hookups
I took an angler out fishing one day to fish the salt
(marine environment) and told him to cast at an approaching school of
“What in the heck are you talking about? I don’t see a thing…just
I’ve been reading water for about thirty years and simply took
for granted that he could do it too. I pointed out particular ripples
on the surface telling him that it was a moving school of salmon. He
couldn’t believe, as a matter of fact he was so stupefied that
he wouldn’t cast. Quickly, I took his rod out of his hand, cast,
let the offering fall for a little acoustic action, felt a tug, pulled
on the rod, and FISH ON! I gave my buddy back the rod and listened to
his howls of glee as he battled the huge salmon.
“I’ve been seeing that for years and didn’t know it
was fish! How did you do that?”
So I told him, and what do you know? He’s been catching fish hand-over-fish
Want to know what he now knows? Want to know what I know? Want to look
like a fishing expert even if you’re not?
Researched Data and Fishing Applications
In the last 23 years I’ve never gone to a body of
water that didn’t have fish in it. Want to know how and why I'm
able to do that when even the most technologically advaced boating equipment
can’t? I created investigative fishing applications for fresh
and saltwater environments with over 100,000 hours of research to back
them up. These techniques/applications work for anyone and work everywhere.
I’ve had the great fortune to watch seven-year old boys learn
the art of Noodle-Rod Fishing within the span of only a few hours. Anglers
who have struggled for years get fish on the hook within minutes after
hitting the water. Anyone old enough to read can master these awesome
fishing insights. Fishermen who have struggled in the past realize that
in many cases the answer to getting a hookup is amazingly simple, laughably,
and somewhat insultingly easy.
Global Fishing Applications
(Universal Fishing Techniques that work Anywhere!)
Fishermen across the planet are using this information
to get an amazing amount of fish; which is why I so heavily endorse
catch-and-release fishing. I would never tell an angler to put back
every single fish, but consider this. If you were to keep every fish
you hooked, fought, and landed you would exceed the legal annual limit
within days of hitting the water and that would be it for the rest of
the year. Where’s the fun in that?
Regardless of your fishing experience, all anglers can
benefit from this site, book, and services. If you’re having trouble
getting fish on the hook write or call and we’ll figure out what
to do to increase hookups.
