  1. Be willing to move, no lead feet
  2. Play to the side 45-65 degrees off the surface of the water
  3. Maintain the fishing triangle (about 90 degrees from rod tip to fish)
  4. Keep steady, even pressure on the fish
  5. Take your time, you can stay in the triangle all day if needed (but lets not)
