1. I Need More Lessons In Patience.
Just dipping my fishing pole in the water with spray bait isn’t gonna make fish attach themselves to my hooks. In addition, it’ll cure me of “I want it now” attitude that’s showing it’s ugly head lately. Another lession in Patience is required.
2. Being Near Water Is Relaxing
I don’t know what it is…but there is something about being by a large body of water, hearing the movement and nature around it–soothing.
3. Equal Opportunity Bonding.
With all there is in the universe to distract a person today, going on a boat or sitting on a dock and fishing with a friend is awesome. Unless you wanna spend the whole time in silence–being a jerk–you get to actually know the other person you’re with. And it’s healthy.
–> insider secret…for all you women out there…this is what really goes on when men go fishing…we bond.
4. Reinforces Discipline.
This goes with #1 patience. To actually catch a fish and refrain from moving your pole around takes discipline to keep in one spot.
5. Everybody’s Doing It.
Sometimes it seems I’m the only one where I live that’s not fishing.
Honestly…I’m starting feel left out here…
