Learning with a Bass Fishing Video
Anyone who spends time in a fishing shop has probably noticed a bass fishing video or two on the store shelves. These videos (or DVDs) often provide valuable tips and pointers designed to improve performance in the art of fishing. As such, they are a fairly important supplementary learning tool to possess.
Studying with a Bass Fishing Video
In order to get better at a particular skill, you need to consistently perform the actions of the skill. However, it is important to note that you will also need to perform the skill correctly. If you repeatedly perform the actions incorrectly, you will not see any noticeable improvement because you are not going to see any results for your actions. This is true in the sportive hobby of bass fishing.
The Crank Bait Example
For example, if you are using a top water crank bait lure, you will need to mimic the actions of an injured fish. Those not familiar with the proper use of a crank bait lure may end up casting it out onto the lake and then reeling it in very quickly. Reeling a lure quickly is fine for salt water predators, but it is generally something to avoid in freshwater. No matter how much practice one gets using crank baits improperly, there is really nothing being practiced other than a flawed method of performance. In order to avoid such a problem, someone needs to point out the structural errors and correct them. This is where a bass fishing video comes in handy.
Depending on the particular bass fishing video, the subject matter may cover casting, lures, live bait, boat fishing and a host of other topics. There is a great variety of bass fishing videos on the market so there will not be an issue of running out of material to learn. (Contrary to what some may believe, bass fishing is a complicated sport)
Some people may be somewhat skeptical about learning a skill from a bass fishing video. This is somewhat understandable because there is no feedback involved with a bass fishing video. In other words, the instruction is coming from a recording and not a classroom environment. The ability to ask questions or have an instructor examine your abilities will be eliminated. This does not mean, however, a bass fishing video is without merit as it provides a solid source of fixed information that can be referenced time and time again.
