There is absolutely no need to convince the thousands people, as well as the avid outdoors men and women – who become excited by reeling in a 30-pound striper or seeing a magnificent brook trout rise to a fly – why they need to begin making plans to head outside. However, if for some reason, you need a little more convincing, we have compiled a list of 10 good examples which might just offer you an excuse to call in sick to work or leave those “honey do’s” for another weekend so you too have the ability spend a day fishing.
Every avid angler has an epic tale to share of how they caught the impossible monster, and if they don’t, they’re definitely in search of the ultimate tale, or tail depending on how you look at it of course. Of course, as with any sport, a little bit of competition is good for the soul.
Most people that spend their time fishing will be very close to water for most of the experience.
And while water is perfectly safe for the most part, there are some situations where not practising proper water safety could potentially lead to problems, especially if there is a strong undercurrent in the water that is not immediately visible from the surface.
There are literally thousands of ways you can look at fishing and name the method.
Those in the know will look at the equipment being used, the place you’re working, the prey you’re hoping for, the reason behind your fishing and so much more. With all of these nuances, it can be tricky for a beginner to get to grips with what they’re doing.
Very many hot days can make fish in shallow lakes, ponds as well as rivers quite sluggish. The same phenomenon takes place in the winter when the water temperatures are lower.
Fishing is one of the most popular pastimes in the world, and it’s a great way of spending a weekend afternoon. Nothing can ruin a good time as quickly as getting a fishing hook caught in a hand or other part of the body, and due to the nature of fishing hooks, it may even mean having to take a trip to the hospital to have it properly removed.
While it probably makes sense to avoid going fishing when the weather is horrendous, most people might not realise that even on bright and sunny days, fishing might not be successful.
That’s because fish, much like us, are susceptible to a wide range of weather conditions that can affect where they’re hiding, how hungry they are, and how easy it’ll be to catch them that day.
Contrary to popular belief, fishing is about more than simply throwing a line with a hook and worm into the water and hoping for the best.
While worms are generally quite effective, there are other bait options available, some of which can be made using household items.
There’s nothing quite as satisfying as firing up the grill after a hot day in summer and enjoying the evening with the mouth-watering smell of grilling fish as everyone prepares for a delicious dinner.
Not all fish are suited for grilling; some are better for frying; others are best when baked.
Fishing is a pastime that can become extremely frustrating for those that find they head out to the water with the very best of intentions but find that they end the day without ever pulling anything out of the water.
There’s a very fine line between failure and success when it comes to fishing, so it’s understandable why the frustration can become palpable after a while, especially when we compare ourselves to more experienced fisherman.
