Patience and Deliberation Count for a Lot
Move slowly toward the river, and stalk patiently. It’s very easy to spook fish away before you’ve even thrown your first cast by not being quiet and mindful.
Once you’ve stepped into the stream, don’t rush. Work the whole stretch in front of you systematically before moving on. Patience and deliberation count for a lot.
