The basic prerequisite for successful fishing is the ability to feed the fish the corresponding bait in a manner, which they may consider natural. The above principle is followed by detailed recommendations, starting with the choice of baits, and ending with those related to the methods of serving them to the fish. Full mastery of these issues requires a combination of theory and practice, that is, taking into account the knowledge of the habits of the fish when fishing. Therefore, you should use the news about it, which food ingredients a given species of fish likes, what are the food size requirements, with which senses he or she orientates himself when searching for prey, how it reacts to color and smell, whether it is sourcing food in an active way, or passive, how – depending on the time of day and seasons – the food rhythm is formed, etc..
This seemingly uncomplicated problem, however, has a "catch"”. For we know the rules, according to which the fish should behave, however, they sometimes depart from these rules. Cases of such deviations are quite common. If fish sometimes behave - from our point of view - illogical, we are talking about their fussy and humor, and we attribute every fishing failure to "a higher power."”. Do we have any arguments, to put the blame on these silent creatures? Why should fish be capricious or even malicious?? Every, even the most modest creature follows strict rules that depend on its living conditions. Can we imagine, what chaos would arise, if an animal for no reason chose to go against the laws of nature? The term "fussy” it would rather be removed from the angler's dictionary. Each unusual behavior of the fish has its logical justification, and errors in the course of action are rather attributable to this, that we haven't been able to find out everything about fish yet. Our good friend can be used as an example, carp. We all know him as a fish, which looks for food primarily at the bottom and we usually catch it there. Under certain circumstances, however, the carp behaves atypically, has e.g.. I want to taste some bites floating on the surface of the water. Then you can throw even the most sophisticated delicacies to the bottom, all in vain. However, if you give him a dry bread crust on the surface, it will probably take.
