Default Casting accurately

When I spotted fish, I used to cast to where it surfaced. I just realized that it's not the right technique. My friend told me that I should cast to where it seems to move next instead of to where I used to cast.

That's why I didn't get many fish before.

Yes, you have to predict where the fish is going and cast your bait on his way so that he can see it and take it.

Just don't get too excited and re-cast too often; I feel like I have a better chance of getting a bite if I stick with a good cast and am not constantly jumping around and being impatient.

That's a good point FishersWife. To keep it natural, you should not cast too often. Otherwise the trout will be curious, "Why does that dressed up bug keep seducing me? Is she for real?"

Over casting is something I am still working on, but then again patience is a virtue right? I have noticed in the time I first started with this (as I called it) "crazy hobby to make me mad" to now, I have slowed down a tad and most times now I am only rushing in when I have too much stress in life, I seem to carry it on my trip outings. Working it on though!!
