Why on-the-water is so important
In today’s generation of savvy learners and the gold mine of information available on the internet, the ability to teach yourself about anything online has become the norm. The learning curve for fishing has been reduced a good amount by online sources, videos, and social media. One might think they know it all before they even hit the water. While A1 is supportive of these information outlets and what they provide, there is still nothing that compare to on-the-water experience and the knowledge and confidence it can build.
Taking a technique from Youtube to the water may seem easy, but indeed, learning to fish with your gut and knowing how to break down lake conditions and then decide on a technique is much more valuable, and obtainable only through time on the water. There is no amount of videos, seminars, webinars, or articles that can provide the learning experience of first hand on the water interaction and instruction. Through our years of learning and fishing we can assure you this is true. While we do not underestimate the ability to learn from online sources it will never compare to time on the water and being an actual practitioner of the sport.
The other key component of fishing you will never experience and learn through online or off-the-water sources is how to operate a boat and use your marine equipment to its fullest potential. Boat control and operation is a necessary skill pertaining to safety as well as an often overlooked key to getting the most out of your fishing. It is pertinent you have a handle on controlling, operating, and maintaining marine equipment, especially for those who wish to be considered by college teams. The only way to get this is on the water.
This is why our services focus on-the-water with off-the-water supplemental materials to help you grow. With our experience we know we can grow your angling and boat operational abilities in our program.
