Fishing-Your Big Catch

Fishing means to catch a fish which means it requires a lot of patience. It can be a sport or recreation. It isn’t that easy to catch a fish immediately once you throw the bait. Needs a lot of concentration and focus just like any other sport.

The most popular method of fishing is angling- Catching the fish with a hook,rod,and line. But unlike popular belief of killing the fish while angling,the fish caught during fishing process will have to release alive into the water once again after the fishing activities are done for the day. If any fish is killed during the process of angling,the angler is penalized.

Sometimes considered within the broad category of angling is where contestants compete for prizes based on the total length or weight of a fish, usually of a pre-determined species, caught within a specified time (fishing tournaments). Such contests have evolved from local fishing contests into large competitive circuits, where professional anglers are supported by commercial endorsements.
