Top Reasons to Go Fishing More Often

Posted

There is nothing better than heading out to a lake, river, stream or even the ocean for a day of fishing. When you have one of our custom fly rod building kits on your side, fishing is a hobby that you can enjoy again and again. Not only is fishing a whole lot of fun, but it is actually good for you! The following is our list of the top reasons for you to go fishing more often:

  • Stress relief - For many, stress is a huge part of daily life, and it can have some serious health ramifications. The more stressed you are, the more susceptible you are to a wide variety of illnesses and health concerns. Fishing helps to relieve some of that day to day stress, so that you be healthier and relax easier. It also keeps you sane, so that you can perform better at work. 
  • Keeps you moving- Although fishing has an unfair reputation as being the "lazy man's sport", it is actually a great, low-impact activity that keeps you moving for a long period of time. While fishing is by no means a substitute for regular exercise, it's a wonderful addition, and a much better option than sitting on the couch while you watch Netflix! 
  • Dexterity- Intricate hand movements are a big part of fishing, particularly fly fishing. Fishing can improve your fine motor skills, and it can even help to keep them from deteriorating as you age! 

These are just a few of the ways that fishing can benefit you. Want to learn more? If so, please stay tuned for our next blog!
