Analysis paralysis or paralysis by analysis
is the state of over-analyzing (or over-thinking) a situation so that a decision or action is never taken, in effect paralyzing the outcome.
Because of an endless array of choices, coupled with a relentless onslaught of advertising, fishermen often end up buying more baits and lures than they know what to do with.
When the bite is tough and we have a 10 lb box full of gear, we can be overwhelmed to a point of analysis paralysis.
Cool, crisp air, leaves changing colors, the sound of the river that seems to have come to life with the recent rain, after
being a warm trickle just weeks earlier. Water temps have dropped and the fish are active.
Before I can even grab my gear and head down to the river I already hear fish rolling. Man I love the fall!
