The "Ready Position" is something experienced saltwater anglers automatically get to before they start fishing. This position makes it easy to start casting, means an angler makes less false casts before taking the shot, and also reduces tangling that can occur in the heat of the moment. It is a vital position to get to and if you are a relatively novice saltwater angler, this tip will really improve your day on the water.
