Start a File

If you're like me, you probably subscribe to several fishing magazines and read a lot of good articles. You could save all of the magazines for future reference, but that takes a lot of space. Instead, get a plastic filing box and some hanging folders, label them with general bass angling headings such as "Boat Docks", "Smallmouth", "Topwater", etc.., and file your articles as you finish them. This will provide you with a literal library of bass fishing knowledge, and takes up very little space. Then when you anticipate a facing a certain condition or employing a specific technique, you can consult your file on that particular subject to gain helpful insight.
