Instincts take time to develop in all environments. Whether you’re playing sports, making sales calls, performing surgery, pleading a case in front of a jury, etc. all these activities require some experience to feel comfortable because they aren’t “natural”. The ocean is a unique playing field that has its own rules which become familiar with time…but that familiarity can be lost if days pass without being in the water.
The way fish move, where fish hide, how you should move, when you should move etc. all of things are refined with experience. When I have to miss a few days in the water (and I try not to miss many!) I feel it. I feel foreign. Maybe this is all in my head haha but I feel like the fish sometimes know I’m not supposed to be there. BUT when I’m in the water for several days in a row…. I just blend in.
The moral of the story? Book lots of trip so you can see what I mean! haha
See you in Puerto Rico!
