A wise friend of mine once said after a day of unproductive fishing: "That's why it's caled fishing and not catching". True enough. We often fish without catching, and while most of us have come to terms with this, we mostly also want to turn fishless days into fish-rich ones.
Fishing on the coast in the winter is very close to some obscure kind of self torture. There are only vague chances of catching anything, it's usually pretty unconfortable and you would mostly be better off staying home tying flies. But GFF partner Martin Joergensen went out anyway.
Global FlyFisher partner Martin Joergensen found a subject for this new podcast in a very uncomfortable way: he fell in! So from the dry front seat of his car in newly changed clothes he this time brings you a podcast on getting wet - or rather: not getting wet.
Martin Joergensen ponders a bit about crowding and how to avoid anglers congesting in certain spots on the water. His main advice is to walk and avoiding fishing close to parking lots, because anglers seem to find these easily accessible places the most productive.
A podcast recorded on a quiet October morning on the Danish coast where GFF partner Martin Joergensen talks about getting up early - advantages and drawbacks - and a lot of other things of course. He even managed to get out again later the same day and did catch a few fish.
