I Suck at Fishing

I Suck at Fishing

Yesterday was amazing. Today I was force-fed humble pie.

Most people would delete this kind of footage. They’d act like it never happened. I was tempted to do the same… but… who does that help?

If we truly are going to get better, then we need to be honest about the victories AND the losses.

This was a loss.
It made me lose sleep.
It made me doubt myself.
It made me crazy.

It also made me want to go back.
To redeem myself.

Have you ever had an experience like that on the water?

Don’t give up.

Don’t give into the temptation to ignore it or act like it never happened – instead, learn from it. Get better.

Let me know if you have any suggestions for improving, or a pond or creek to fish, or just want to say hey in the comments or on social media. I’m always trying to improve and appreciate your input. Thanks much!


Let’s get better.
