Reasons to practice fishing as a hobby 

- Fishing requires a direct "deal" with nature.

We hear many times that "I'm going to the country, to relax." In a mostly urban society, everyone is aware of that need for "escape" that only nature can give us. The incomparable setting that fishing offers, both on the river and in the sea, makes this activity the perfect excuse to enjoy the outdoors.

- Fishing "makes friends".
We love telling all our friends: talking about fishing trips, articles, catches ... When you like real sport fishing, you enjoy, even without taking the rod. And nothing better than sharing your fishing trip with a friend. Over time, it may become a future companion of fatigue.

- Practicing sport fishing develops the capacity for observation, reflection, interpretation, etc.

If the good fisherman can boast of something, among other things, he is an observer: he knows the behavior of the sea, the tides, the atmospheric variables, and the lunar calendar.

- The practice of fishing awakens positive attitudes related to the natural environment.

The fisherman is the first interested in the conservation of the natural environment (thanks to him he can enjoy his favorite hobby). Knowing and valuing the environment will be the starting point towards a conservationist conscience.

- Fishing teaches you to eat well

What one fishes fishing tastes better, neither more nor less. The guarantees of freshness and quality offered by the fish that we fish do not allow any discussion and, in a way, are the best rewards for the effort of a whole day.

- Fishing stimulates the eagerness to know new places, to travel

When we have combed our entire coast or we have approached all our rivers, we always look for new horizons to undertake the next adventure. Fishing becomes, again, the perfect excuse if what we want is to know "world" with the "cane on its back".

- Fishing generates employment and wealth

Specialized brands, shops, fishing trips.

- Fishing is a healthy activity
No fumes, no cars, no noises.


Fishing is a thrilling hobby that requires being done right for it to work. It is also an escalating hobby which allows you to experience different levels of mastery. This means that you will have the ability to determine your level with time. It is also a great hobby to pass time with with your children or grandchildren. One of the biggest challenges for most is the lack of information which then makes the whole ordeal frustrating. Having the right information and a guide at best will save you unnecessary learning experiences and time. Taking time to invest both regarding time and money will ensure that you have some of the most memorable experiences over time. Joining fishing clubs and groups will also enhance the experience since you will work in close collaboration with folks that have the same interests as you. It is not an expensive hobby to start which is why it is worth a try for anyone looking for one.
