The Art of Timing:

FISHING

 

  "Old fishermen never die, they just smell that way"    
 

Fish bite best during the three nights of the full moon and the three nights of the dark moon, and for a couple of days after. You can easily work out your best fishing days with a lunar calendar available from most New Age shops, or check the table here. The days when you are likely to be most successful are highlighted in bold.

 

Another bit of fishing lore is "Moon by day, fish by day; moon by night, fish by night."

 

If you want to further refine your fishing times, there are four times a day when you are likely to be more successful and that is during the magic 45 minutes before and after sunrise and sunset, and moonrise and moonset. You can check sun- and moon-rise times here.
