    I agree anyway that its senseless to kill things for mere sport.
    I used to hunt destructive varmints and small game animals for food, which I see absolutely nothing morally wrong with. In fact, more deer are wasted by wrecking motor vehicles than are ever taken by hunters in my area. But trophy hunting and canned hunting by rich, macho jerks is about bragging rights and big money changing hands. And many of the animals they use for this disgusting slaughter belong to endangered species.

    These days I'm more concerned about dangerous varmints named Jamal, and Mohammed.

    I grew up in a fishing town and really like the water - and yet I don't really like seafood! I feel kind of bad about this - I want to be more open to seafood some time and give it a try, because I feel like I must be missing out on a lot.

    Fishing itself, I'd also really like to get more into. Like most kids from my town I would go out fishing with my father sometimes, but I was never any good at it and I never kept up with it as I grew older.

    I don't fish very often, but I do enjoy it. I particularly like rainbow trout, fried and served with buttery rice.

    About ten years ago a co-worker invited me to go fishing with him. I said enthusiastically "For sure! I'll bring a frying pan," envisioning cooking and eating the fish on the spot.

    "Oh, you won't want to eat these fish. They're full of mercury," he said.

    I was mystified. "If you can't eat them... why would you fish for them?"

    "Oh, for sport. Catch and release," he said.

    I was astonished. It sounded to me like mining for gold just to throw the nuggets away. Why would I want to waste time and effort catching fish, just to throw them back? What a bizarre concept. But apparently a few people like to do that.

    I have taken up fishing these last few years, more than I ever did. I don't push my limits and I have just a small row boat. On bigger trips I borrow a very fast fishing boat, but I don't see the need for owning such a thing. I go because I love being outdoors alone or with people I care about. I only fish for the ones I like to eat such as Walleye, Crappie, Blue Gills, Yellow Perch, and few others. I don't eat Catfish, Carp, or Bass, so if I catch those I throw them back.

    Fishing can be very relaxing even if you don't catch somethings.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    I have a lot of fond memories of fishing as a kid. The vast majority of times I fished were either at my grandparents' property (multiple ponds on private land, out in the middle of nowhere), camping at a park with my dad, or going on one of the billion Scout camping trips I went on.

    Competitive fishing (ie, spending endless amounts of money/gear to fish in a tournament) is just lame, though I know what a longstanding tradition that has been in the US. Honestly the best times were when it was just me and my dad. We always fished to eat. My dad and all the other adults I fished with never let us throw any fish back unless it appeared to be a very small/young fish that still had a lot of growing left to do and if said fish didn't appear to be too injured already from the hook. This was far more common at parks than on my grandparents' ponds.

    I remember the first time my dad showed me how to clean a fish by myself, then take it back to our campsite, cook it over a fire and eat it. That built a world of confidence in me as a kid.

    For the record I am all in favor of humane treatment towards fish, game, and all other animals period. Every time I fished, the turn around time from catching a fish to consuming it was always quick (less than a day) - unless we caught a lot, in which case the extra fish would be frozen and eaten within the week or so. Game should be taken quickly and never allowed to suffer more than necessary. I believe this is far easier to do for an individual fishing than for a commercial fishing expedition.

    My dad is fanatic recreational/sport fisherman. He every year spends one week in Lapland river Teno (in Finnish), Tana (in Norwegian), Deatnu (in Samis). My mom has ''allowed'' that to him; who knows maybe one secret of their long happy marriage? LOL.

    What comes to me, he has taught on me, but I rarely just fish. BUT I quite often fish at the same time as I'm hiking in the forest.
    As there are ''too much'' stuff to carry; I prefer as light equipment as possible:


    Very light & small reel (probable one of the smallest one in the markets):

    Light and short telescope rod (easy to pack, carry and won't break as easily).


    ...with these:




    I fish perch


    , as...
    1.) it can be found everywhere here.
    2.) it taste good,
    3.) the size suits well to light equipments

    Plus it is easy to cook in camp fire .




    I would like to learn to fly fishing (as it looks so harmony/peaceful), but I really have't had time for that. And by then I would exactly need to go to fishing (rapids). Maybe not...

    I haven't fished in decades. I used to fish when I was much younger, but it was mostly an excuse to be outdoors in a quiet, peaceful setting with no traffic, people, or noise.

    I was never a fisherman.

    I would not have any patience to do it. I'm a very active person.

    I've never fished. I have no interest in it. In fact when I signed up for an online dating service (eharmony.com) I ruled out the men who said they were into fishing.
