I've always been an impatient person. This was an ongoing way of life until my boyfriend changed my life. He asked me on a weekend fishing trip. My first capture shifted my perspective.
I sat peevishly on a dock beside my boyfriend for what seemed like an eternity, until I felt an unexpected tug on my line. My eyes filled with excited while I tried to hold on to the pole for dear life.
After my first catch I was inspired to fish even more. Each trip I made sure to do my homework about the species of fish, various kinds of bait and what areas were catch and release.
I also learned how to prepare and cook fish which ceased visits to the grocery store. Catching and preparing my own fish has allowed me to eat clean by knowing the origin of my food.
After reflecting on my first trip, I can now say I enjoy line fishing and find it relaxing to get away and be still.
Fishing is one of America's favorite leisure activities. I can't say it's one of mine, but I've gotten the hang of it. The "waiting game" as like to call it won me over with its tasty results. One of my favorite fish to catch is trout.
I'm going ice fishing for the first time with friends this Tuesday in Alaska. I've been trying to prepare myself as best as possible by getting the proper gear together and bracing myself for the cold.
That's why I decided to learn about them all. After doing much research I discovered which fishing wire works best for me. I like the braided line. Most people think it's new, but it's one of the oldest ways to fish.
