    Default Fishing

    Dont know if this is the right place for this but I'll post it here to begin with.

    What do any of you know about fishing? Is it a good pass time? Do you need to know a lot or get a lot of things to break into it as a pass time?

    Fishing is boring as fuck unless you do it in a populated lake/river.
    I only did it for food when camping. It was satisfying in a primal sort of way, to catch/clean/eat your own fish by a fire.
    Just need a pole, fishing line, bobber, & plenty of live worms.

    Or unless you're a James Bond villain.

    Its literally the easiest "sport" I've ever participated in. There's a ton of ins and outs and people have turned it into a science, but as far as getting started it's one of the easiest ones to break into. No real talent or practice needed. Coincidentally, it's not really too fun on its own. But! With friends, some drinks, and music it's a good way to sort of be productive while doing something you'd normally do anyways.

    I like to fish. It doesn't have to cost a lot. You can buy some fishing line and hooks, tie it to a stick, dig up some worms if you want to be really cheap. I don't fish often enough to spend a lot of money. I have a fishing rod and a halfway decent reel. I use the little weights you squeeze onto the line and I buy red worms at the gas station. Bobbers can be nice, but you don't have to have them. I usually fish at the wetland outside town.

    For years I didn't fish because I didn't really have anybody to watch the kids, my husband doesn't fish, and fishing with four kids by myself didn't result in me doing much besides baiting hooks and pulling line out of trees. There isn't any reason I can't go now. I keep not buying a license because I'm afraid I'll only go once and I'll have wasted the money. That's really silly because it's only $17.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
