Use these simple rules and you will be a lot safer.

When confronted with an attack, verbal or physical, most people reactrepparttar same way.They freeze.

This is your first reaction . Why do most people react like this ? Because they didn’t expectrepparttar 136624 attack.

The danger of freezing when suffering an aggression is that you loose an important advantage.

What isrepparttar 136627 best reaction in case of an attack ? Obviously this depends onrepparttar 136628 type of attack. But generally speakingrepparttar 136629 best way to defend yourself is by running away. Seems simple enough doesn’t it ?

When it is that simple , how come so many people , mostly male , suffer more serious results from attacks then women ?

The answer is your ego. When attacked , your mind automatically starts thinking things like , “what is this guy doing “ “ Is he crazy ?” “ I will get him”. From that moment on you will fight back instead of running away.

When you arrive or get close to your destination, wander intorepparttar local tackle store and speak withrepparttar 136568 sales people. They'll usually know what's going on and have a few tips for you.

Guided or self-guided fly fishing trips

A guided fishing trip is a good idea if you are fishing unfamiliar waters. Even a couple of hours with an expert will give you hints and tips that apply to that particular spot. You'll spend more time in productive fishing.

Guided trips can cost you dearly. You'll pay byrepparttar 136569 hour, byrepparttar 136570 day, or by whateverrepparttar 136571 guide decrees. Some guided trips will include tackle, some will not. The price will vary accordingly.

If you are an experienced angler and expert at reading any water then you'll be able to get away without paying for a guide. Sometimes peace and solitude is well worth a couple of hours of getting used torepparttar 136572 stream.

For me,repparttar 136573 hike intorepparttar 136574 backcountry enhancesrepparttar 136575 trip. I take time to soak inrepparttar 136576 fresh air and admirerepparttar 136577 scenery. The fishing isrepparttar 136578 climax, butrepparttar 136579 journey is well worthrepparttar 136580 time.

Fly fishing is more than just a sport, it is like painting with many brushes. An extended fly fishing trip will enable you to practice your artistry. If you return with nothing more than a greater appreciation ofrepparttar 136581 beauty of a trout, then you will have returned a greater artist.
