And above all, don't lose faith. When the weather looks threatening, a one of my friends says, "the fish don't mind, they're already wet." He's right. A good angler learns to work with the wind, using it if he can, and working around it if he can't. There simply aren't enough days in the year for most of us to get out fishing. Rather than sitting out those marginal weather days, why not make the most of them. And as I've learned, some of them may hold the best fishing that you're likely to run across all season.
