When you go fishing, how much do you think about the knots you use? How often do you inspect your line for kinks and crimps? Do you ever inspect your hooks to make sure they are nice and sharp so they give you a clean hook-set?
If you’re not doing these things, you should. Pro anglers need to put every detail to work in order to have consistent success.
One of the greatest examples of detailed fishing is Mark Davis, a member of Huk’s Pro Staff and host of Big Water Adventures on the Outdoor Channel. Keep reading to find out how attention to detail has made Mark Davis one of the best anglers on the water.
Many anglers get so caught up in the goal of catching a limit that they neglect the details of fishing. However, successful anglers are always paying attention to all the fine details, down to the smallest item.

You often hear the phrase there is nothing more important than a friend but like many other clichés of life especially at today’s pace, many of these old time sayings are said without really understanding their meaning. As I look back at the past five decades of my life spent in blue water and at my hunting career which has taken me all over the globe, I lift both hands in front of me and start counting off the friends which I could call at any time day or night for help; those who would put their life in jeopardy to save mine, or for that matter those who I can count on in the absolute worst of situations.
America (and much of the globe) seems to have an obsession with billfish, but few species are as popular as the Atlantic blue marlin.

If you want to join the ranks of anglers who’ve pulled up a blue marlin, you have your work cut out for you. But with the right techniques, you can add this world-class trophy to your list.
