What is Fishing?

By January 20, 2013

Follow me on:

George Pellow with his first black tench. What is fishing? It can vary from netting tons of fish for sale to catching tiny bream with a cane pole. Anyone can fish and any age. Most kids love fishing and it becomes a lifelong hobby for many. And some make a living at fishing in tournaments. Fishing is fun for most everyone.

How do you define fishing? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Fishing is a hobby for me, but more than that a passion, I sit around and day dream about fishing and when I’m fishing, I day dream about the big one. It’s my safe haven from the world. It’s a beautiful, peaceful get away… It’s a love of mine if ya know what I mean… And when I fish to have a little fish fry, I reckon I enjoy myself there too

Fishing is commraderie- either with family or friends. It’s teaching my son/daughters how to fish and seeing the joy when they catch something. It’s having the choice to catch and release or have a huge fish fry. Mostly, it is enjoying the Lord’s creation.
