One of the best ways to pull yourself out of a rut is by fishing somewhere new. That could be anything from a section of your home river you usually skip to taking on an entirely new waterbody. The same goes for targeting a species of fish you’ve never gone after. Trying something new means dusting off your problem-solving skills to figure out the hot spots and best approaches. And what you learn from fishing somewhere different and targeting new species—be it discovering new flies and tactics or just a fresh perspective—will almost always help you back on your home waters.
