If you want to step up your fishing results, the key is preparation, homework, and the ability to adapt to suit the prevailing conditions. Carl Jocumsen is a young guy from Toowoomba fishing in comps in the USA, and he takes all those steps to the next level. If you get a chance, jump on the ‘net and follow his progress.
“That’s all well and good,” you might say, “but how is following a guy in the USA catching foreign fish relevant to me?”
I’ll tell you: it all boils down to attitude. This guy just exudes confidence (“whatever it takes” is his motto), and a big part of his success is due to preparation and adaptability. It’s interesting to read how he tackles each different scenario, and you never know – some of his talent may just rub off!
