Favorite Fishing Tips & Better Hunting Hacks

Looking for some clever fishing tips and hunting hacks? Check out this list!

Favorite Fishing Tips

  • Instead of rifling around the tackle box to find hooks, string them on a large safety pin. Use different pins for each size to keep your hook search quick and easy.
  • Baking soda toothpaste does more than keep your teeth clean. If you’ve been cleaning fish, squeeze a quarter-size dollop of paste into your hand, scrub well, and rinse to remove the telling odor.

Better Hunting Hacks

  • Duct tape, particularly the bright orange color, is useful for everything from marking locations to making repairs. Instead of bringing a roll, wind some around your flashlight or lighter to have it accessible if you need it.
  • Don’t simply toss extra cartridges into your pocket where they can make noise when you walk. To keep them snug and silent, bind them together with an elastic hair tie. Hair ties slip off easier than rubber bands and will ensure that your steps in the woods are quiet.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
