A quick look at the whether or not fishing can be considered a sport. read more
It's a way to get some good lean meat for the dinner table . That said, it's also a great time to relax, enjoy the quiet, the fresh air, the sunshine...definitely a leisure activity for me. While I love to eat fish, the food is pretty much just a great way to justify taking an entire day in the mountains. That said, I'd say that the way some people do it is definitely a sport -- some are in it for the competitive aspect, trying to snag the largest, most difficult fish just to be able to say they can.
I think it has to be a sport, it combines skill with athletic abilities, not always apparent when you're into the tiddlers, but a 30+lb pike, or steering a 40+lb carp away from the lilies and reeds, or 100+lb shark soon makes it athletic.
It depends on how you look at it. For some people this is a hobby that has gradually turned into sport. There are fishing championships and tournaments which are very interesting to watch. I think that for majority of people fishing is a hooby.
