Throw a lucky man in the sea...

Okay, I avoided this as long as I could.
I love catching fish but there are a few other things that would make me recognize a lucky man.

No disrespect, but there must be a few other things a guy could come up with that would make us view him as lucky.🙂

On the subject of luck and fishing, I think it is 90% luck and 10% technique, you can try to do whatever you want, use the right bait, a perfect bait, the perfect technique for that bait, but if the fish don't want to eat then you are out of luck. On the other hand, some days you are out there and you catch them one after another, don't know what you did right, those are the days luck is on your side :)

I agree that it's a mix but there's a reason why 10% of the anglers catch 90% of the fish.
Which is why this quote exists:

"The harder you practice, the luckier you get."

I drive past promising trout waters every week, but unless I stop ro fish, my catch rate is zero. A perfect example is evanluck. Heck, he even has luck in his screen name. But he's not lucky. He just gets out there, which is the lesson for the day🙂.
