Understanding Movement

Think about movement for just a minute. As cars down the freeway, children play in the house, and a dog runs in the yard, and so on, the eye naturally turns to take notice. When you go trout fishing, in many cases, movement equals trout.

Imagine for a second that you are sitting on a bench at your local park. There are people playing Frisbee, jogging, dogs playing, children on the swing set, pigeons begging people for food, etc. Although you may not see every aspect of every movement, you still know movement is occurring because you can see it out of the corner of your eye.

For trout fishing, the same is true. Remember that when you see movement, you many not see the entire trout. Instead, you may see a quick flash of light, an odd shape, a shadow, or even a small portion of the fish itself such as the tail or fin. Therefore, rather than expect to see the entire fish, teach your mind to look for "movement", which could be a trout.

Additionally, when it comes to casting your line, you do not necessary have to cast in the exact spot where you same the movement but just in the general vicinity. For instance, if a trout is lying on the bottom of a lake, river, or stream that has a sandy bottom, it might move to get more comfortable and thereby flick its fin causing bubbles or movement on the water's surface. That movement seen may be a foot or more away from where the fish is actually lying so remember to cast nearby by not necessarily exactly where the movement was seen.
