Fishing Tip: use the sun when sight-fishing

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

When sight-fishing in shallow water, try to keep the sun behind you (or at least at your side) if at all possible. This will give you a better view of the bottom, your lure or fly, and any fish in the area. A bonus? A bright sun in a fish’s eyes makes you tougher to see, so you can get closer before you place your cast. This simple tip can do wonders for your sight-fishing success.
