What does fishing mean to you?
Peace, serenity, calming, family, friends, adrenaline, excitement, patience,...
There's a multitude of expressions that I can define what it means to myself. I'm certain that you may feel quite similar out there on the water, too.
What does the actual term mean though? Angling in freshwater or saltwater trying to catch fish, for a variety of species.
Our actual definition can be found on our angler's terms and definitions page. - "To take fish by way of hand, or using a hook with live bait, dead bait, or artificial lures, which is attached to line spooled on a reel and rod."
If you need a more elaborate explanation of the term, go check out a dictionary, thesaurus or Wikipedia.
With that out of the way, I've gotta ask what does fishing mean to you?

Angling has been around for thousands of years. It used to be primarily a means of survival. It has since evolved into an ever growing and popular sport. It's a hobby to most, and a way of life to earn a living for others. All of this helped make it possible for us to be where we're at today. It has given us the freedom to enjoy this great sport of fishing.
Fish like you mean it!... with a purpose, a mission, and the knowledge that you are better prepared, better equipped, and quite possibly the best on the water that day.
If you don't understand the fish, then there's not much of a chance... unless you are really lucky.
Most importantly, relax and have fun!
