8 Reasons Why Fishing is a Great Hobby

February 22, 2017 4 min read 6 Comments

We are a group of people that love hobbies and we make and sell products that make our experiences better.  Heated Clothing is making any hobby more enjoyable and something to do, and enjoy in the cold winter months.

Hobbies are great extra-curricular activities to fill your spare time that boost your individuality as well as your happiness. The best thing about hobbies is that different people can choose different hobbies according to their personalities. There are many hobbies which you keep on enjoying even when you are retired from your most formal routines like gardening, collecting stamps, and fishing.

Many old and wise people associate fishing with health and happiness. If you think about fishing in prehistoric times, it was one of few ways for human beings to survive. And when you think about fishing in abstract terms, the images of vast horizons of seas depicting calmness and serenity come to your mind. The serenity and calmness that you feel while sitting on the bank of the river catching fish makes you forget even the most complex problems and worries and you find yourself in a distant land far from the miseries of the artificial world that we have created for ourselves.

In this modern technological world when everything is available at a single touch on your mobile, people still go to fishing, and here is a list of 8 reasons that prove that fishing is the best hobby.

1. Stress Relief

A wide range of people go to fishing, and if you ask different people why it is their favorite hobby, they will answer that fishing gives them relief from stress, and they feel free. “Freedom” is what you experience when you go fishing. When you go fishing to a stream or to a pond, you experience and see an environment that is entirely different from your ordinary life. You appreciate and enjoy this new environment. If you interact with nature, you become a part of it, and this makes you forget all the worries of the world.

2. Social Bonding

Another important thing that you can achieve by going fishing is that you can build strong relationships with your friends. In our ordinary environment in which we live, even if we give some time to our loved ones, we are constantly frustrated by the background noises and the tensions caused by different issues. On the other hand, if we go to some place quiet with our friends or family members, we can be at peace with one another by listening to the most inner voices of one another.

3. Health Benefits

Our routine lives are so mechanized that we sit all day in our offices or at our homes without ever realizing how disastrous that is for us. Another dilemma of the modern age is that more than 50% of people are overweight and one reason is because people sit all day long. If we go fishing, we become active and feel encouraged. Fishing promotes a healthier way of life.

4. Recreation

Fishing is a recreation where and even the worst day, when you catch no fish at all, is better than the time spent at home doing chores. Many people comment that the pleasure of fishing lies in the activity itself, not in how many fish are caught. Pinning insects in your hooks, putting them in water for hours and waiting, and then finally catching a fish are truly spectacular feelings.

 

5. Self-Fulfillment

Fishing also gives you the pleasure of self-fulfillment. When you go to fishing, you respect your outdoor environment, you learn skills, you learn to be patient, and above all, you set a goal for yourself and you try to achieve that goal, and all these activities give you a sense of fulfillment.

6. Fishing for Food

In our days we can get food in an instant, but the healthiest and most natural food that nature offers us is waiting for us in a stream, in fact, most people prefer fresh meat rather than buying preserved meat in a can. Wild fish is rich in protein and contains little cholesterol, making it a favorite food for many.

7. The Thrill and Challenge

Most people love fishing because of the thrill and the challenge involved. It really is a thrill sitting in a boat with the anticipation of of a fish snagging your lure. The biggest challenge lie in the methods you use to catch fish, and not all are guaranteed success, which is why so many people learn from these challenges.

8. Paying Tribute to Nature

When we go fishing, we pay tribute to nature and and show our thankfulness for the things that nature has given us, and such precious things are worth living for.

I like how you pointed out that if you go fishing you get to build a stronger relationship with your friends and family. My husband has been wanting to learn how to fish so I wanted to see what kind of benefits there were to it. Thank you for talking about them and for explaining why they’re important, I’ll make sure we go fishing soon! https://reeltrail.com/category/fishing

It’s great to know that we can get a lot of benefits in fishing, my dad has grown up doing fishing as a hobby and we have adapted that hobby. We so loved fishing, come to the point that we have scheduled fishing at least three times a month and we do this as a form of bonding. It truly helps with relieving stress since all you do is wait for something and you get to chat, stare at nature, breathe fresh air and relax under the trees and sun.

OK-I’ve been a flyfisherman for over 50 years-so-I agree with you-it’s a great sport. Any fly fisherman that fishes for Steelhead will tell you it gets cold out there in November-at least in the NW. Apparently you folks do not understand about cold feet. Where are you foot warmers?

I like that fishing can be a stress reliever. So many people, including myself, get so stressed out in their daily lives. It would be great for everyone to find a hobby, like fishing, to take their minds of the troubles of their everyday life in order to just enjoy themselves and to relieve stress. It just seems like it would be better for everyone to stress less and become more calmed and relaxed! That way everyone can enjoy their life more.

My husband thinks that our five-year-old son is old enough to start going fishing with him, so I wanted to learn more about if this would be a good idea or not. Before reading this, I didn’t realize that fishing with someone promotes a bond between you because you get to spend time away from chaos and noisiness. Fishing seems like a fun and healthy way for my son and husband to bond! I’ll be sure to share this with them. Thanks. https://www.riptide.net/
