Joy of fishing

Many of us can find fishing as an uninteresting and time taking leisure activity with no adrenalin rush or thrill involved. But a fishing enthusiast can convince you differently.

Recreational fishing is either just for fun or competitions. It is the act of catching fishes usually with the help of lines, hooks, rods or reels using different kind of baits. The effects of baits are enhanced with the help of tackles like floats, weights and swivels. Some aficionados make artificial flies and lures all by themselves for effective fishing.

Fishing in open water on boats to bait bigger fish is known as the Big game fishing. Another technique to catch fish is to use your bare hands, generally for catfish known as noodling , common in southern United States. Trout tickling is another interesting for of fishing where one can tickle the under belly of the trout fish, with proper technique this can take the fish into a Trans state within minutes, after which the trout can be easily captured.

Fishing is a very beneficial activity which increases your focus, patience and determination. Very subtly it explains you the joy of achievement after a long run of trials, fortitude and perseverance. Moreover, fishing alone in the serenity gives the fisher time for healthy introspection and retrospection. Fishing indeed teaches us a lot of important life lessons.

Fishing comes with a lot of rules, regulations and licensing. Every government sets their own rules to ensure sustainable fishing. The method of catch and release fishing has become common among eco friendly, nature preserving fishing enthusiasts.
