|The Recreational Value of Fishing
Many people consider that fish are only a medium of survival, or
to some extent a food supply; yet there is another angle that is
little known. The manufacturing industry utilizes more than two
billion pounds of fish and fish by-products every year. This is
slightly more than is used for food.
What most people do not know is that fishing continues to
provide recreational activity of making it one of the most
In fact, fishing as a hobby is continuously growing and that is
why the estimated number of people who acquire fishing licenses
each year is more than 12 million.
Moreover, surveys show that for every dollar spent for a fishing
license, there are sixteen dollars spent for equipment, such as
fishing tackle, food, clothing, and transportation. There is
more money spent on fishing than on any other hobby in
existence. Why is it a Great Hobby?
It is a means of providing something to free the mind and body
of the worries of the day. It has also been proven to help in
mentoring troubled teens, replacing negative thoughts and
activity with more positive traits and pursuits. Fishing is
truly a wholesome sport.
The use of all types of fishing equipment has added something
that no other feature could possibly accomplish. Thousands of
youngsters are enthusiastic to learn how to cast a fly or plug
These youngsters have an interest in fish and fishing and they
desire to fish in a lawful and recreational manner. Boiled down,
fish and fishing may be considered one of man's essential
resources. It is hoped that further realization of fishing as a
hobby will develop the necessary knowledge of the true
recreational value of fishing, the fish, and the general
conservation of all natural resources as well as the value of
good sportsmanship and developing good citizens.
