Why would anyone fish? Why would someone sit in a boat for hours on end staring into the water waiting for movement on their line.
Do we do it to relax, and calm our nerves? Do we do it to compete and win a prize? Do we do it to develop a good relationship with our kids? Do we do it to keep kids out of trouble? Do we do it for food?
Whatever the reason you have to fish, keep on doing it. You can fish at any age. It is good for your health and well being. The fresh air and all the vitamin D from the sun. It rejuvenates your head and your soul, as well as it tastes fantastic.
At Bass Pro Shop we believe that anyone of any age is never too old or young to not fish. Anyone who has ever caught a fish, and eaten it that day knows there is nothing better. All it takes is once to get addicted to fishing. When you reel in that first fish you want more. You want larger fish then you want to catch different fish.
Sitting on the boat you watch the water ripple and wait for that fish. You forget about the office, money or anything that might be bothering you. It is truly good for your mental health. With all the stress in the world what a perfect time to teach your kids how to kick back and fish. Teach them something that they will have with them forever. Fishing teaches patience, it will reward them for paying attention and doing something correctly. The best part is that it develops a bond with you, that will be passed down to their children.
So take a little time while this warm weather is around and fish.
