Fishing Is Good For Relationships

Realize that when you take your kids fishing you are actually doing something very important. Adults can use the fishing experience to teach kids much more than how to catch a fish.

  • A father-son or father-daughter fishing trip leaves more time for a one-on-one chat than most other activities. You can focus all your attention on your child.
  • Real conversations - The quiet stillness of a lake and the relaxing nature of waiting for fish to bite fosters plenty of conversation, some of which would be awkward to broach over the dinner table. 
  • Teaching your child a new skill that they may use for the rest of their lives adds a new dimension to many father/child relationships. Kids are now teaching their parents how to use new technology, it's nice to finally be able to teach them a valuable hobby.
  • Making memories that last a lifetime - as your child grows older they will spend less time with their parents. 
  • Instilling a love for the great outdoors - The opportunity to share nature, a love of fresh air, beautiful views, and sunshine without the need for technology can help combat the effects of an indoor lifestyle.
