Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of posts from folks who think that they should have instant results when out fishing a new body of water or with a new technique or rig. I think some have forgotten the number one rule of fishing: patience. Anticipation is a great thing to have but it should always go hand in hand with patience. There is no substitute for experience and as we all know that equals putting in time on the water as well as studying maps and charts and any other resource you can get (like this site). Just my two cents.
