I have to be one of the most superstitious anglers out there, I believe that luck plays a huge part in fishing and if lady luck is going to help me then everything has to be in place. When I was match fishing I felt it unlucky to put my keep-net in the water before I caught a fish. I don't like my landing net being in the water unless I am landing a fish. When I fish 2 or 3 rods I will individually mark the rods so I know which is which and one will become the lucky rod. Many times over the years the “lucky rod” has been the one to catch the biggest or the most fish.
