5 Crazy Reasons To Go Fishing – (And Why Fishing is Like Life) –https://joysofjoel.wordpress.com/

Fishing is a great time buster , a way to enjoy nature and a great stress reliever. I can actually cite a hundred reasons to do it but i respect your time so i come up with just 5 good ones:

1.  Relationship

Fishing with family and friends cultivate bonding. It strengthens your relationship when you have enjoyable shared activities with people who mattered.  Well, unless of course you start fishing into their private life behind their back, that’s a different story. Proves that you don’t really need to go outdoors to go fishing. Just go online, log in to your facebook and you can tweet who’s got the largest fish in the group.

2. Health Reasons

It’s always better to get your own fish…fresh, as wild fish are known to be low in fat and cholesterol and high in protein and there are many fishes in the ocean, especially the wild ones! 🙂

3. Fulfillment 

You get a certain fulfillment.  Who wouldn’t?  After a long bout of sitting and  doing nothing, it’s such a great joy catching a big fish.

4. Creativity

It  brings out the best in you.  You find creative ways of using  a great pawn to bait the one you’ve been longing for.

5. Knowledge

Fishing is educational.
– It teaches you a lot of lessons.
– You learned more about yourself, your strengths, hopes and wishes.
– It tests your patience and willpower  that no matter what, by hook or by crook you won’t go home empty handed.

Fishing is like life,  just when you thought you had the perfect expensive equipment to catch that elusive fish, somewhere along the way you’ll discover that it’s not how much you have or how prepared you are for that moment that gives you the exact advantage.

And at the start of that fishing expedition you won’t really settle for anything less than that “huge catch”  because you rightfully deserve something bigger , not until you realized that it’s almost dusk, you’d rather have one crappy fish than nothing at all.

            1. Well, you can always look for a new fishing ground if you’ve got time and great fishing buddies, this time it’ll be different. But of course nothing beats doing it during our innocent and playful childhood days.

    1. Me disculpo yo no hablar bien el español . un poquito. It’s okay if you don’t get any fish at all during your activity and yes we might have clumsy buddies but that’s all right. As long as you enjoyed it, that’s what matters. Thank you Lurda for dropping by and sharing your story. Gracias.

  3. I went outdoor fishing once and I remember being in awe of all the nature surrounding our small group. The lake was spectacular and it was so peaceful. I’v been reminded of that special time especially during the spring and summer. Great life lessons here. Thank you

  4. Hi I see the subject of fishing created lots of interest here! You seem to have writtent this a bit tongue in cheek (relationships? creativity? cholesterol? ) and to me fishing does sound a bit crazy 🙂 If only because I can’t even begin to imagine just sitting anywhere for hours!

    1. I used to think i cam’t take it sitting for hours until i discovered blogging. So is fishing like blogging? I think both is making my world crazy, beautifully crazy. 🙂 I wouldn’t mind sitting for hours reading your blog because i really enjoyed your writings and other people’s works.I can’t thank you enough for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Thank you so much Bea, it’s always a great feeling when someone takes their time leaving a comment. Have a great weekend. Take Care.

  5. I like this ! my grandkids went fishing for Springbreak, it was only going to be one day, but they ended up going everyday…they had a blast, and yes learned many lessons 🙂
    if more kids (and adults) put a fishing pole in their hands instead of a remote control, or that thing they play videos with,
    I used to fish with a cane pole LOLs… not sure those are still around, i hope so

    Great post Joel
    Take Care…You Matter…

  6. Well Joel, you have a friend in my husband. Fishing is his sport. He gets on public t.v. at times and just watches the fishing shows. He just doesn’t have time like he used to have it. But when he was much younger, he could fish for 9 or 10 hours straight. I bought him a mug that said “Everyone’s got to believe in something. I believe I’ll go fishing”. I am glad he has that passion. He has taken all of our children fishing and only one stuck with it while they were younger. There was only one time I got angry with him loving fishing. He went out onto a frozen lake to talk to a gentlemen that was ice fishing. He had my youngest daughter, about 12 years old at the time, tagging right along with him. I nearly fainted!

    1. Who doesn’t love fishing? Wow, a frozen lake. Must be so cold, never tried ice fishing, must have been icy fun. I understand your concern with the safety of your daughter and at least all’s well, must have been an experience for her. Thank you Rosa for sharing your thoughts. What a wonderful read getting insights from your experience. Thanks again.

  7. I love fishing, Joel. I’ve had the fortune of fly fishing for Trout in Montana, riverbank fishing for Salmon in Alaska, and deep-sea fishing. It’s all so peaceful until you hook one, then it’s exhilarating!
