“Always keep your eye on the weather!”
- Fairly obviously the type of weather that is prevailing will have a large impact on your luck. Easterly and North Easterly are the worst types of wind that you can get.
- Always check the wind direction before you cast. The direction and strength will have an impact on how you decide to approach a cast.
- It is desirable to have a slight breeze to move the top of the water. Fishing in a lake with a water surface like a mirror is difficult because casting can cause a disturbance of the water and spook the trout.
