From quite a young age I used to go lake fishing. It was a pass time that I really enjoyed but was not very successful at.
Many times I would sit from dawn until dusk at the water’s edge with my rod and line poised in readiness and yet I would catch nothing at all. This never daunted my enthusiasm or enjoyment of a day at the lakes.
Getting married and raising a family gradually pushed fishing into a distant memory. Several years ago my wife and I decided to start lake fishing again. We purchased the basic equipment and set off.
As had been the case in my previous days, although we enjoyed the day, we were largely unsuccessful in terms of fish caught and yet other anglers around us seemed to have a lot more success.
I decided that something needed to change and ventured over to talk to one of the other anglers. I asked what bait he was using and he was very forthcoming about the best types of bait for certain types of fish.
On our next day of fishing we arrived armed with the very best selection of the recommended bait and ground bait to attract the fish to where we were fishing.
Once again, we were largely unsuccessful and this made me a little annoyed. What were we doing wrong? Other anglers seemed to be catching fish every few minutes.
Over the next few trips, I talked to a great many other anglers and I gradually came to understand that although we were all fishing in the same water, different anglers had different objectives. Some were fishing for Carp and so used certain adaptations to their line and used specific bait. Others were fishing for Perch and so used much longer and more sensitive poles with again, specific bait, and so on.
It became apparent that although at a first glance we were all using a rod and line with a baited hook, to catch a fish, this was not in reality all that was going on.
And this is also true with forex trading.
We are all trading the same market and we all have the same objective in that we all want to make money. Many of us may even be using the same trading system and yet some will be successful while others fail.
To have any chance of success in forex trading it is vital to be able to use the correct method to suit the market conditions. Using a method that suits a trending market when the market is flat will undoubtedly be unsuccessful.
Making short term “in and out” scalping trades when the market is fast moving and is in an established trend will certainly limit the profit potential.
Learning to read the market conditions before deciding to trade is therefore as vital, as is selecting a method that suits those conditions.
The more volatile the market, the more cautious we need to be.
It really is similar to fishing.
The fish are out there but they need to be caught. They will not just simply jump onto our hook because we want them to.
We need the right bait and the right tackle for the right fish.
We need to know what our objective is and we need to set ourselves up accordingly.
We need to know when the conditions are right and we need to be able to recognise when they are wrong, and even when the conditions are perfect we need a great deal of patience while we wait for the fish to bite.
Finally we need to know when to “strike”. Too soon and we disturb the fish and it gets away. Too late and it has eaten the bait and is gone. Our timing needs to be impeccable.
With forex trading we need the right system.
We need the right method within that system. We need to know what our objective is. We need to know that the conditions are in our favour.
We need to know when to NOT trade. We need to be very patient and above all we need to know when to strike with impeccable timing.
Forex trading, like fishing, is part science and part art.
You can purchase the science but you must learn the art.
For many years, lake fish have been classified under three general heads: game fish, food fish, and forage or bait fish.
The bass, trout, pike, pickerel, muskellunge, pike perch, etc., have been generally known as game fish because of their sporting value.
On the other hand, carp, suckers, some of the catfish, yellow perch, etc., have been considered as food fish. While this latter group has not been considered as furnishing the sport that the so-called game fish do, nevertheless, it has a real economic and recreational value.
Generally speaking, in lake fishing, words are really inadequate when it comes to describing the correct procedure in casting. The best way to learn how to cast is to go down to the beach, watch an expert at work, and try to do likewise.
Nevertheless, lake fishing can really be fun and the novice will quickly master the correct form in lake fishing. Therefore, to further harness their craft, here are some tips that could help the anglers on their lake fishing activity.
1. In lake fishing, as with other forms of fishing, a smooth, snappy stroke is required but not as snappy as when snapping a whip. This type of stroke will cause the loss of many flies.
2. Anglers should remember that it is the line that is cast, not the fly. The fly is but a passenger, which is attached to the leader.
3. Proper timing is an important factor on both the backcast and forward cast.
4. Know the fish habitat and the kinds of fish that inhabit the lakes. Some of them are the sunfish, and the small mouth black bass.
These kinds of fish can usually be found hiding near some submerged log or stump, or among the plants.
5. When catching big fish in the lake, it is best to use big, sturdy rods. Big fish like the bass usually attain a weight of 12 pounds, which usually inhabits the lake or pond. The reason why they grow really big is that in lakes or ponds, the food is both abundant and very rich.
Hence, to handles these sizes, the ideal length and weight of the rod is 8 feet in length and from 4 to four and three quarters of an ounce in weight.
Indeed, the fundamental principles in lake fishing are not difficult to master and with little patience and practice, the novice can become a successful angler in the lake.
Lake fish have categories that are divided into three general groups: food fish, game fish and bait or forage fish. These classifications of lake fish have already been used for a long time. The kinds of fish that belong to food fish are suckers, carps, yellow perch, some species of catfish and more. In the game fish group, the species included were trout, pickerel, pike perch, pickerel, pike, bass, etc. They were characterized as such because of their sporting value. Bair or forage fish do not offer the same application as game fish; they also have their own recreational and economic value.
The description of proper technique for casting in lake fishing is hard to express by merely using words alone. In order to learn well, one should go to the lakeshore or beach and observe a skilled fisher and try to emulate him or her. Though the techniques of casting are hard to describe, the amateur fishers will still have a delightful experience. Here are some techniques that anglers could take note.
a. Research or study on the habitats of fish and the fish species living in lakes such as mouth black bass and sunfish. These fish species go into hiding in stumps logs, or in water plants.
b. It is necessary for anglers to know how to execute an even, snappy stroke similar to other kinds of fishing. Yet, it should not be as brusque as snapping a whip. This kind of stroke can lead to loss of several flies.
c. In executing both forward cast and backcast, right timing should be taken into consideration.
d. In casting, the anglers should remember that it is not the fly which is cast but the line. The fly is connected to the leader, more like a passenger.
e. In fishing, it is better to use huge, strong rods, especially when the angler had caught a big fish. An example of a big fish that dwells in lakes is the bass which can weigh up to 12 pounds. Bass grow well in ponds or in lakes since they can get abundant food from lakes and ponds.
In order to handle big sizes of fishes, it is ideal to choose a rod with a length of 8.5 feet and a weight of 4 to 4.75 of an ounce.
With these tips and techniques on lake fishing, amateurs will not have a difficult time in learning how to be a skilled angler. Also, he or she has to put patience and effort in order to become a successful angler.
