TOP ANGLERS CATCH MORE FISH - 80/20 RULE

 

Have you noticed those 'lucky anglers" that seemingly catch trophy fish whenever they hit the water? They seem to know when to go and it all just comes together for them.

Well, it's not luck! It's about great observation skills, time on the water and a deeper understanding of how you operate your boat and fish finder, to discover exactly what is underneath you (not what you THINK is there).

This ability to know exactly is under your boat so you can fish on the fish is something Ryan Moody has mastered in his 30 year career as a big fish fishing guide. He also understands what people struggle with, after teaching fishing strategy and fish finder skills for years with his fishing courses.

And in Sounder Skills 1 he takes you through the fish finder fundamentals that most people overlook (even experienced fishos), to maximise the effectiveness of your equipment.

Sounder Skills 1 was explained in layman terms. You can buy all the tools, but not the knowledge. That’s where you come in Ryan! Cheers mate for a great course

Cliff Wylie, Goolwa, S.A. Lowrance

MEET YOUR INSTRUCTOR

Unlike YouTube fishing "experts", I’ve been finding and catching BIG fish for decades as a premium fishing guide. I've had to learn what works and what doesn't under many different conditions.

After successfully empowering thousands of ambitious anglers with my proven methods, vastly increasing their fishing enjoyment and catches, my deepest hope is that I’ll be able to help you do the same.

The easiest way to catch such great fish consistently, is by better understanding your fish finder / sounder.

Cheers, Ryan Moody

Sounder Skills 1 is great and I have already recommended it . We have these wonderful tools at our disposal and we’re only just scratching the surface on how to use and get full benefit from them.

Travis Peck, Dawesville, W.A.

I’ve seen Ryan’s other awesome videos, so I had no hesitations at all about signing up to Sounder Skills 1. Sounder Skills 1 is a great introductory course, I have already recommended it to my mates!

Travis Peck, Dawesville, W.A. Simrad
Simon Ross, Brisbane, QLD

Originally I did have hesitations about signing up to Sounder Skills 1. I have been considering doing a few courses for a long time now but was nervous about spending the $$$’s and what I would get out of it being an online course. Very Very helpful, it’s given me a complete understanding of the basic fundamentals of using my sounder and I will definitely be signing up for Sounder Skills 2

Simon Ross, Brisbane, QLD Garmin
Chris Cherry, Sippy Downs, QLD

I thoroughly recommend Sounder Skills 1 as it is full of great info, easy to follow topics and graphics, and is well presented.

LEARN FROM AUSTRALIA'S FOREMOST FISHING COACH WITH YEARS OF TROPHY FISH CATCHES AND PROVEN STUDENT RESULTS.

WHAT YOU'LL GET?

In this course, we're going to go through the 3 main reasons people don’t see fish on their sounder.

Understanding these concepts is the difference between the marketing hype and the reality of what you see in your boat. The biggest issue is they INTERACT with each other and can cancel each other out OR exacerbate the problem (making fish so tiny you can’t see them).

We demonstrate these concepts with sounder shots AND actual sounder recordings narrated by Ryan fishing on the boat, so you can begin to conceptualise the 3D world underneath you displaying on your 2D equipment.

There are TWO CORE VIDEOS which take an hour to watch plus three bonus videos. No frills, no fluff. Just an expert angler sharing his hard earned knowledge with you.

Please don’t be too concerned about the model of sounder we are using, or the species of fish we are displaying. All sounders conform to these principles and all fish targets are just that… fish targets. You'll see from the testimonials this course works in all locations and on all units.

We have included examples for both side scan and traditional. If you don’t have a side scan unit yet, revisit this course when you do as they are TOPS. For those with side scan, I use my traditional in tandem with my side scan, so the entire course will be of benefit to you.

We have also added some troubleshooting in Video 2 for deep water anglers using traditional 2D units only.

The result is CONFIDENCE! Knowing what is actually under you instead of being tricked by little known illusions. Plus we'll teach you how to ENHANCE what you want to see (fish) instead of getting duped by clutter.

No Frills No Fluff
Actionable easy to follow insights

  • Why you're not seeing fish

    There are three simple reasons that prevent you from seeing fish on your equipment, and I address all three and explain the interactions between them. Simple and practical.

  • Searching and Assessing

    These two very different applications need to approached in two different ways. We explain how to get the most out of your equipment for both applications.

  • Fish are not rocks

    To the uninitiated, bottom dwelling fish can appear as rocks. We show you how to tell the difference. Because who wants to spend the afternoon fishing for rocks?

  • When to adjust your settings

    There’s a time to fiddle and a time to leave it alone. Are you confusing yourself even more by making unnecessary adjustments? Where most people go wrong has nothing to do with their sounder settings!

  • Converting 3D to 2D

    Learn how the conversion from 3D under the boat to 2D on your screen can play tricks with your brain and what the display REALLY shows.

  • Insights applicable worldwide

    These insights are not just for use in tropical Australia. They apply wherever you use a boat and sounder/side scan.

  • Lifetime Access

    Learn slowly? Don’t have much time? No Problem! Unlimited access to the course once purchased – simply log in via your username and password.

  • Includes Updates

    Like all our courses, any updates are included in the original purchase price. Simply log in and the new stuff will be there!

Ryan Carter, Cheltenham, VIC

I use Hummingbird and Lowrance and I found Sounder Skills 1 to be a good introduction to understanding your sounder, frequency settings and identifying fish and it’s really cheap!

Gary Heldens Hervey Bay, Qld.

Sounder Skills 1, showed me things I had forgotten, and things I never knew, even though I have been using and repairing them since paper ones. Knowledge is a valuable asset, without which nothing much happens. My motto has always been if you don’t change nothing changes!

Gary Heldens Hervey Bay, Qld. Lowrance
Cameron Hansen, East London, South Africa

I would recommend Sounder Skills 1 as I feel many of the people I fish with lack a large majority of the knowledge taught in the course, as they are older fishermen that have not kept up with the times and modern tech. I particularly enjoyed the information on scroll speed and gain, also how to read and tell fish from structure.

Cameron Hansen, East London, South Africa Garmin
Mark Welsh, Benalla, VIC.

I fish more fresh water & own a traditional 2D with chirp so I was a little hesitant to purchase Sounder Skills 1. However I thoroughly enjoyed Sounder Skills 1, it does present as a good first course on basic use of your fish finder.

Mark Welsh, Benalla, VIC. Lowrance
Jon Rathbone, Townsville, Qld.

I think anyone who purchases a sounder for the first time, needs to know more than what the manual offers. Sounder Skills 1 is an introductory course and shares that knowledge and lays the foundation to not only to start finding fish, but in using your sounder to it’s full potential.

Jon Rathbone, Townsville, Qld.

  • I have already told everyone I know how good this course is. For once in my life there's no bullshit I had to listen to. Just goes to show that you're never too old to learn something new.
    John De Bree
  • I've been using fish finders for 20 years and was surprised at what I didn't know. I picked up a few great tips that I haven't seen anywhere else. Definitely recommend.

"After 35 years as a charter guide chasing trophy fish for clients, you learn a few tips and tricks not many people learn. Even if you have been using a fish finder for years, I think you'll be surprised at what you can learn in this course." -Ryan Moody

Linton Bradley, W.A.

I was a little hesitant at first, being from WA but I have been pleasantly surprised! I am absolutely loving Sounder Skills 1 and learning how to use my sounder.

Linton Bradley, W.A.

I have always struggled with reading and adjusting my sounder, that’s why I loved Sounder Skills 1! Great course Ryan and Karen, I will recommending it for sure

Chris Nicholsen, Ormeau, QLD

I definitely hesitated before purchasing Sounder Skills 1, but after completing the course not one bit of information was not helpful! I would definitely recommend this course to others, the content is explained in a very easy to grasp manner.

Alan Gardner, Townsville, QLD

Sounder Skills 1 is absolutely amazing! I have a 2D unit and interpreting the size of the fish certainly helps a lot. Cheers guys top course

Clinton Ansell, Surfers Paradise, QLD

I found Sounder Skills 1 to be full of very good knowledge. I have been running fishing charters for 14 years and still I learnt a number of things I never knew before. This will definitely help take my guiding to another level!

DO YOU WISH YOU HAD SOMEONE WHO REALLY KNOWS THEIR STUFF, FULLY EXPLAIN IN SIMPLE TERMS, HOW TO GET THE BEST OUT OF YOUR FISH FINDER UNIT?

We're from Northern Australia and the fish species we use in the demo are as well. But our concepts work worldwide! We've had happy students in 48+ countries using all manner of fish finder brands and units. This goes to show you that fish targets are fish targets and our concepts work wherever you are in the world.

We have also included some deeper water stuff for the offshore anglers using only 2D traditional. It is especially important you bed these concepts into your mind and really put them into practice as depth exacerbates the problems we have seeing fish and identifying large fish vs small fish.

Understanding these concepts really is the difference between the marketing hype and the reality of what you see in your boat.

So... Are you ready to learn the most IMPORTANT fishing skill for only $20 Australian or your money back?

yes let me in

From paddock to plate....

Skills with your fish finder equal more consistent catches (and fresh fish for dinner).

  • For the price it was GOLD. Very clear and concise. Great tips! Definitely recommend this course.
    Chris Powell
  • Totally recommend this short course. Minimum cost and very informative. Even if you're just honing your skills.
    Ian Garrett
  • Absolutely recommend....the value of your experience and knowledge coupled with ease of learning. For a so called experienced fisho I learned HEAPS.

What our students say...

Side Scan has been a part of my sounder I’ve really struggled with. Now Ryan has shed some light on it for me, I’m more confident with my interpretation of what I’m looking at.

Steve Lawlor
  • I found the course very helpful in understanding my side scan unit. Definitely recommend.
    David Churches

Clear, concise and to the point. Spoken like a true fisherman.

Brett Organ

The great interpretation of the images of fish bait and structures on the chirp as to a traditional one frequency unit has helped me out and cleared a lot of things up for me where I thought it was bait but could of actually been fish thank you

Doug Mellor

It is very informative and well delivered by Ryan and he explains things in a way that is practical and easy to understand.

Rod Hanneman

Anything from RMF is going to be good. Learned a lot about my side scan and will be watching it a few more times.

Cameron Telford
  • I definitely would recommend the course. Cheap as chips. Even if you only learn one new thing. Could be the difference one day in finding fish or not.
    Matt Brownsey

Found the whole thing interesting and will be watching again. Would definitely recommend.

Kelly O'Connor
  • Great! Includes practical aspects of sounder use not told by the sales people.
    Mike Stott

I've seen many tutorials over the years but was never able to correctly interpret what I see until Ryan explained the basics.

David Walker

Loved it! Ryan is down to earth and tells it like it is. No hype to sell products.

Gerry Flora
  • I really liked how you put effort into not only teaching what to look for on the screen... but how to drive the boat to give the best sounder shots! If you don’t drive the boat right doesn’t matter what settings you have, you won’t get the optimum result on the screen.
    Steven Brooke

Absolutely l gained so much from this course. I have done training with the sounder rep and I got more from your course!

Carmel Redgewell

Do this course. Everyone with a sounder needs this to help understand the confusing instructions supplied with the sounder.

Wayne Picker

Definitely recommend the course to others. Just excellent content and info from a professional. Nothing changes if nothing changes!

Mark Wanstall

I have had my sounder for 5 years and never seen a barra or thready or anything else. Seen rocks wrecks etc. but never fish. Now I have new ideas to try. Thank you

Neil Coad

Can't I find this info on YouTube?

Definitely recommend Sounder Skills 1. I have watched heaps of YouTube clips to try and explain what my sounder is showing me but Ryan explains it in simple terms.

Nathan Pratt, Biloela

I figured what have I got to lose with Sounder Skills 1, might even learn something... 10mins in, I realised I didn't know much at all so signed up for Sounder Skills 2 too. I would totally recommend Sounder Skills 1. Google & YouTube together don’t know as much as Ryan does!

Scott Farlow, Ashby NSW, Garmin

Having a modern sounder in your boat is useless if you can’t drive it! I learned more in ten minutes watching the videos in Sounder Skills 1 than I did watching hours of videos on YouTube!

Ian Bertenshaw, Colyton NSW, Garmin

It's not just Ryan's knowledge, it's actually his delivery that got me into Sounder Skills 1. It's quite refreshing to come across a down-to-earth type & his fishing skill is matched with a natural flair for teaching.
I hung off every word, Ryan's a modern-day Vic McCristal & I'm all ears.
There's a plethora of supposed experts on You Tube & Facebook etc., but Ryan is the ONLY one I've seen yet, who comes across as a real person, not a 'wannabe' trash-talking, self-obsessed, cap-backwards hero.
Cheers mate!

Jason Wood, Boyne Island

Yes, This course has increased my understanding of how to use my fishfinder 2D and SV greatly. I have been reading facebook posts, watching youtube videos and taking live courses on setup for my Garmin and nothing has helped my understanding more than these online courses. I now have a much better understanding of what I am seeing and realize I have been missing fish due to misinterpretation of what I was seeing on screen. Thank you Ryan Moody!
