Reaching some of the best fishing areas often requires a bit of driving. The journey to and from the fishing hole can be quite perilous. There may be a lot of fishing tips out there but few that offer advice intended to minimize trouble while traveling from Point A to Point B. I shall make an attempt to fill this void with “Driving to Fish-Tips”.
Give a wave instead of the finger
We see it all the time where someone less courteous cuts another driver off in traffic or makes an egregious offense on the road. A few angry car horns are likely exchanged with a follow up yell of “Whaddayadoin’?” The situation goes DEFCON 5 when one driver or both display the middle-finger\pluck yew hand gesture. For some reason this act ignites rage beyond comprehension and next thing you know people are trading paint or punches. While the cops sort things out ol Rusty the dog in back of the truck is thinking…
“We should be fishing right now.”
This type of thing could be avoided with a small concession of good will and a civil gesture before things escalate. Rather than flipping the bird and crashing your vehicle into the other driver, give them a friendly wave instead. This small act of forgiveness or admission will most likely diffuse the situation or at least keep things from evolving into a hostile entanglement.
A good fishing trip will always benefit from fewer problems. Hopefully these Drive to Fish Tips help anglers reach the water and return home to fish once again. Good luck and good fishing.
