"My view is that all weathers are part of the angler's world and that whatever the weather I'd much rather be amongst it wielding a fishing rod than sitting at home watching it through a window. But some weather patterns tend towards more success then others. For example, in cloudy days it is sensible to assume that the fish will be closer to the surface than on bright ones. Perhaps they feel safer, maybe it's because they don't wear sunglasses. Windy days tend to cause the fish to swim somewhat deeper, it is thought that on cloudy windy days the fish are three times as deep as the waves are high. Bigger fish are more likely to be caught on windy days. I think. At least it appears to happen more often than coincidence would dictate."

And if it's really shit you can always blow yourself up.
