  1. Check your knots.  Every single time they tie a knot, effective anglers give it a good tug to make sure it’s strong and seated correctly.  Every time.  It is very unusual for a really good angler to ‘break one off’.
  2. Keep your hooks sharp.  Almost any time he touches his fly, a great angler will check its point to make sure it’s sharp.  If it’s not, he’ll sharpen it or replace it.
  3. Organize your gear.  It’s kind of obvious when you say it this way, but having the right gear for the situation, organized so you can find what you need, helps a lot.  If you look inside the gear bag of an effective angler, you don’t see a big pile of doo doo.
