Hackney Talks Becoming a Champion Angler

If you’re interested in the mental side of figuring out fish and becoming a better angler through better decision making, you might want to listen to Greg Hackney talk about what was different from last year (where he finished 44th in the standings) and this year (where he won his first Angler of the Year title on the Elite Series).

He talks about fishing every day, fishing lots of tournaments, trusting his gut, rolling with the bad times and the good times, not letting his fatigue talk him out of doing what he needs to do to be successful, fishing away from the crowds and more.

A really insightful piece of fishing advice from one of competitive fishing’s top anglers.
