All Things Fishing

Updated on March 16, 2010

Fishing just for the fun of it.

I have been looking at different forums for my favorite sport, fishing. Most of the forums and blogs that I have been seeing are informative. Sometimes way to technical for some of us. I thought that maybe some people would just like to read about someone having fun with the sport. Not trying to win a tournament or getting all technical about the lures and such that fisherman use. I just like to have fun with it. In my mind fishing is a sport, and sports are supposed to be fun. I go out fishing with my husband and we spend quality time talking about fishing as well as other topics. Its wonderful. We see other people out fishing and some of them are working really really hard. Now everyone can fish in the manner they enjoy but for me its the time on the water and the time I spend with my husband. Now don't get me wrong, there is nothing better than catching a fish, feeling it tug on the line and wondering what kind of fish it is. But I just don't want to work that hard. Casting a couple of hundred times in an hour is not my idea of fun. Yea those guys catch fish, but I have noticed that there are many times when the guys casting all over the lake are just not catching anything, and I with my live bait and bobber am catching fish. Now I'm certainly not a fish but it just seems to me that fish want something real. I personally would not like to eat plastic, I want real food. Sometimes I think that when the guys throwing plastic worms and lures are not catching anything and I am that the fish just want real food. Weather permitting I try to fish at least once a week. I started to fish because I was dating my future husband and he loves to fish. So I decided to try it. I didn't really want to but a girl has to do what a girl has to do. And low and behold I love fishing too. And ladies the really best thing about fishing is beating the guys at their own game. Man do I love to out fish the men. I am going to talk about rods and reels and stuff like that but I won't get to technical, just tell it like it is. I read those other forums about fishing and pretty soon I don't know what they are talking about. I get bored because they seem to take all the fun out of fishing and that's what fishing is supposed to be, just plain old fun. I have been fishing now for about 25 years and I still giggle when I catch a fish. And that is what fishing is really all about.

      Thanks so much for your comment. Yea some people make a job of it then I think a lot of the fun goes out of it. Better to try to catch a fish and fail then to never try.
