Wade through water very carefully. While fishing in a river, be careful as you walk through it, moving slowly as you go. Sound travels a long way through water, and you will spook the fish by making too much noise. So move slowly and do your best not to disturb the river bed or the river's inhabitants.
Consider using a lighted bobber if you are fishing at night. This is a useful tool used by many fisherman. Lighted bobbers are bobbers that have a light inside to help fisherman tell when they have a bite. If a fish begins to nibble the bait, bobbers will bounce up and down so the fisherman can see.
To have patience is possibly the best advice that can be given to someone with regard to fishing. Sometimes you will have to wait for a very long time to get a single bite. Stay patient and try to appreciate all aspects of fishing, not just the end result.
After determining the appropriate place to catch fish, cast your line upstream. Your hook will drag past the fish. Furthermore, this natural drifting motion is more attractive to fish and is likely to produce the desired results. This works even better if you are trying to hook fish that are hiding under obstructions.
In the cold weather, sinkers are a good product to have when fishing. Using sinkers weighs down your line, letting the bait sink deep into the less-frigid water where fish hide out during the winter. The size of the sinkers on the line will dictate how low your line sinks.
Learn to fish responsibly. Leave the environment as pristine when you leave as it was when you arrived. If you bring food and drinks with you, do not litter. Make sure to learn what the regulations and rules are regarding the body of water you are fishing and adhere to these rules. Release the fish that are too young or small for eating.
Whether it's sunny outside or not, it's always a good idea to bring sunscreen along. Sunlight can burn your skin no matter what the temperature is, and while you fish you will be exposed to bright reflections off the water's surface.
