Why Do People Love Fishing So Much???

Published on April 12, 2015 under Billfish, Salt Strong

If you have never been fishing before, then I could see how tough it would be to understand why people love fishing so much.

Well here is what you need to know: the love for fishing isn’t just about catching a huge fish every time…or even catching a fish at all.

So why do people fish you ask?

Here are just a few reasons people love fishing:

  1. Camaraderie
  2. To get outside and enjoy nature
  3. To be on or near the water
  4. Adventure
  5. Fishing is a new challenge every time you hit the water
  6. To dream…
  7. The unknown…

In fact, part of the fishing addiction is not knowing what you will catch that day…will it be your new record…will it be a new world record…will you catch a trophy fish…will you catch a fish that you have never caught before…will you catch a fish at all…the unknown always keep anglers coming back.

This famous quote by Henry David Thoreau says is best:

why do people fish

Finally, a huge thanks to Dan DiNicola & Peter Chaibongsai of The Billfish Foundation for putting this amazing video together and reminding us all why we really love to fish.

Amazing job!
