Hi all , Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can feed his family for life. That is kind of how the old saying goes however like any blanket statement there are holes in this theory. If fishing were easy everyone on Naked and Afraid would thrive. Most cant catch more than a few minnows and big fish elude most if not all. Fishing requires first a body of water be it stream, river or lake and a fishable population of edible fish. Then comes the hard part HOW do I catch them. I see fish traps used, nets, and modern fishing tackle. Ill stick with fresh water game fish as they are my expertise. I own a small fishing lure company and build fishing lures by machine and by hand. The art of tackle making is not lost and can be found all over the fishing community from people who tie flies to guys who build giant wooden lures like me. The age old method of a worm on a hook is still one of the best methods of taking fish. Most small game fish (panfish) eat many different things from worms and grubs to any type of bug, cricket or minnows. The wiggler or Mayfly nymph is a great bait found by digging in mud along stream banks. I would like to see this thread used to post your best fishing tactics in your A.O. Have fun.
