Let’s Go Fishing – Outdoor Life

Fishing Techniques for Outdoor Life

I’ve gone fishing once in my life and that was over 20 years ago. With all the work I’ve done lately for Outdoor Life and Field & Stream I think I’d be pretty good at it. Here are two small fishing techniques for the April issue of Outdoor Life showing where to place the lure and in which direction to move it to attract the fish. The technique is called butterfly jigging and is shown here in fresh water (it’s usually a saltwater technique).

I really enjoyed trying this underwater perspective and painting some fish and rocks. If you read my blog regularly, you now know how to fish the European Nymphing style and the Butterfly Jig. Come back soon for more useful tips.
