What are you fishing for

Are you using the right bait

Are you tossing your line

Willy-nilly out into the water

Or are you laser focused

On the spot in the water

Right where you want

Your hook to drop

Are you able to wait patiently

Until you get a bite

Or do you get anxious and

Reel your line in


You can make a better cast

When you get a bite

Are you skilled

At setting the hook

Or do you let emotion take over

Jerk too hard

Lose the fish

Tangle up your line

When all you had to do

Was settle down

Take your time
