Matt discusses the challenges of remembering that one big fish capture and why the details are so important!
That One Big Fish That Stands Out From All Of Your Catches!
How many of us have that one big fish capture that stands out above all the rest? I guess that most anglers do and could re-tell the story over and over again. What if I was to ask you what combination of things you did at that venue, on that day that made the difference? Depending on how long ago it was, you would probably remember just the basics. For example which lake, what bait you were fishing, and perhaps what method.
The reason I’m asking is you, like me, will probably find it difficult to remember the details of what worked and build up a full picture of what you were doing on that day when you caught such a memorable fish.
Memory Is A Funny Thing
One such day for me was when I caught two 44+ pound carp on the same day, a very vivid memory of such a huge catch. So while testing Finygo, I have been happily adding the details of that and other past trips, so the app can track my progress over time, but also so I can put together some of the fishing puzzle via the app’s (really smart) analytics. The only thing is, I realised that I couldn’t put in the level of detail I would have liked to, because I couldn’t remember them!
Alarm Bells Ringing
This set alarm bells ringing, because it’s the detail that will make you a better angler. The details to make smarter decisions that ultimately result in more of those catches that standout in your mind.
Step Forward Into The Future!
Personally, I can’t wait for Finygo to come out. It’ll save me having to worry about remembering the details, because I’ll add them after each trip, and that, along with all of the information it automatically captures, will all be at my fingertips to analyse and get the know-how to make more great fishing memories
