Fishing Is Easier When You Use A ‘Net

There is a widespread tendency to think of fishing as an older person’s pursuit, and a hobby from a bygone age. In some people’s minds, it is hard to tally the idea of fishing as a hobby with using the internet for entertainment and information. However, this is a total misconception. For one thing, there are far more “old-style” hobbies which have websites devoted to them, and for another, as an exchange of information the Internet is peerless. Having the web available to you when you are looking for a heads-up on fishing technique will always be helpful.

There are several specialized fishing sites on the Internet, and they take many forms. Some take the approach of a travelogue, noting experiences of an angler who spends time visiting different locations and reporting back on which were good and which simply were not. There are other sites which are specifically informational, and still others which are more social than anything else. Usually these will be forums or message boards, and these can be the best place to look if you wish to ask questions.

If you have concerns over whether you are using the right bait, are looking to buy a better rod but want one that suits the waters you are fishing in, or are looking for a decent location in which to fish, then there is plenty on the Internet for you to check out. You’d be surprised what you can find and some of the information you get will be highly beneficial.

Eat What You Catch?

It is surprising how few people actually eat the fish that they catch. For many people, hooking and landing a fish is all they want, and when they unhook the – still living – fish, they will return it to the body of water. This may not strike everyone as logical – “if you are humanitarian enough to not want to kill the fish, why are you putting a hook in its mouth”, they will demand. But for some people the thrill of the challenge is enough, and there is no need to go any further.

However, if you do intend to eat the fish you catch, you should be sure what kind of fish live in the body of water you plan to fish. It may be that the available species are not really the kind of fish you want to eat. It is true that everyone has different tastes, but there is no doubt that some tastes are so “out there” that most people will not consider it to be worth the effort of acquiring them. If you can find nearby a fishing location with a fair supply of the kind of fish that you want to eat, then it is all the better for you.

If you are going to eat the fish you catch, it is probably also worth reading up on how to prepare them for cooking. The fish that you hook will not be ready for eating, by a long way, and needs to be cleaned and filleted before you can even think about putting it in your mouth.

Your Own Little Patch Of Heaven

Many people travel far and wide to find the best spot to fish. Many others don’t care so much about the best spot, but want to try fishing in as many different places as they can manage. But everyone who enjoys fishing has their own spot which they return to time and again. Where it is does not matter so much – it could be a quiet spot you found by accident, it could be the first place you went to with your father when he was teaching you to fish, or any number of other locations and reasons. The fact remains that we all have our patch.

As humans we are very drawn to the significance of signposts. Not literal signposts, but rather times, places and things which have a deeper meaning for us. Our wedding anniversary, our home town, our lucky rabbit’s foot, whatever they may be, these items have a connection for us which means that we don’t forget them, and which we will always recognize them when we see them or when they happen. Your favorite fishing spot has the same effect.

The interesting thing about this is that the favored spot may not be one where we were especially successful. We may have landed more and bigger fish in other places, and the place we love may be entirely imperfect. But when push comes to shove, and we need a trip to get our spirits up, it will be there that we return. Surely you have a favorite spot? If you don’t, you will one day.
