Those that like it love, and those that donít cannot get their head around it. Fishing is one of the most polarizing past-times going, and non-fishers can find it very difficult to appreciate the attraction. However, talk to those that love to fish and youíll see it's far more than a past-time; itís a way of life. For most, fishing is not about the need to eat, but the need for inner peace. Fishing can be one of the most relaxing things in the world, and it lends itself to long periods of quiet reflection. The world is changing, and the serenity of sitting still for hours, watching the water and waiting for a bite is not something you can get many places any more.
