REEL IT IN WITH REPEL
You know what they say: A bad day of fishing beats a good day of doing pretty much anything else. If you’re anything like us, you’re happiest when you’re out on the water reeling in your next big catch. And even if the fish aren’t biting, testing out a new lure or trolling for a better fishing hole is just part of the experience. Fishing is one of those pursuits where patience and timing matter almost as much as talent and know-how. Making just a few small tweaks to your angling game can make the difference between a full-on fish fry and an empty net.
Sometimes, sitting in one spot just doesn’t do the trick. Hiking a little farther down the trail, wading a little farther down the river or moving around the water gets you out of range of other fishermen and puts you in prime spots others aren’t willing to look for.
LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES
How do you remember what works for you and what doesn’t? Keeping a record of the fishing spot, weather, time of day and lures you use when you can’t reel them in fast enough will help you have more good days than bad. Just keep a pocket notebook in your tackle box to use as a cheat sheet when you’re planning your next getaway.
Pass on your love of the sport to someone else. Not only does it remind you of why you love to fish, but it also forces you to look at your rod and reel a little differently. Watching someone learn how to cast, bait a hook or choose a lure and fielding their questions might have you considering new strategies for snagging that record fish.
Staying put in the same spot on the water for hours – not knowing if you’ll catch a fish – takes a special breed. Fishermen, above all else, first have a love for the great outdoors and being part of it. Repel® insect repellents make sure that only the fish are biting on all of your outdoor adventures. They ward off biting bugs — even in the toughest conditions — and fit right in your tackle box. With a range of aerosol, spray pump and lotion repellents, there’s a Repel® product designed to protect you out on the water as long as you need it to.
