The Health Benefits of Fishing

Captain and Boat If you ask men and women what they do to relax, many will tell you they like to go fishing. Indeed, the health benefits of fishing are many, with the main one being a time to get away from the seemingly endless rush of modern day life and take time to relax, outdoors, surrounded by nature. You can fish from shore or on a boat, surrounded by water, fresh air, and, depending where you are, trees or mountains. It’s really serene.

Fishing is a great way to let go of stress. It takes a person’s mind off their problems, as well as their “headaches at work.” Indeed, a fishing trip is a respite from all that is wrong with the world. It’s man (and woman) versus nature, but not in a combative way– instead, it’s a fairly comfortable experience which involves some exercise and the chance to take deep breaths of air. The “thrill of the hunt” makes fishing psychologically interesting as a person asks themselves, “Will I catch something? What might it be?” When something gets caught on the fish hook, a person’s body experiences a pleasurable adrenaline rush. It’s a feel good moment.

Of course, fishing is never a “for sure” thing– sometimes fish get away. But, as people are apt to do in life, if one gets away, then “try, try again.”

Fishing involves using your fingers, forearms, wrists and hands to bait hooks, cast the line(s), and “reel ‘em in.”

Fishing can be a low-key affair, or it can be a lively adventure for the mind, body and spirit.

    It sounds like I need to go fishing more often. It does seem like a great way to get rid of stress, which is something I have a lot of. Maybe I should look at going on a fishing charter trip!
