I know that I have asked this question before but with all the new members I figured I could ask again.
I for one fish because it is one of the only ways for me to relax and let go of everyday problems. I get to enjoy be outdoors and comune with my more natural surroundings.

I fish to relax, with haveing to deal with irate customers in their homes sometimes I just need to sit back with a cold barly pop and enjoy the water. It helps me put things into perspective alot of the time.

My father took me fishing all the time when I was a youngster. As a young kid in the outdoors, fishing got to be a challenge for me to out fish the old man and my friends. I didnt sit at home in front of the TV in my spare time, I would walk to the nearest creek and pond to catch what ever was biting. Fishing became my favorite hobby or past time. Now days its a get-a-way from the everyday hassells and stress that life hands out.

I can't wait for the weekend - after a hard week of working - there's nothing like 48 hours (or more :) ) of fishing.

That's why I go fishing

Why i fish is it's my way of life. i am 31 years old and been catfishing over 25 years of that 31.

I suffer from bad nerves high stress and depression. so i also use catfishing to help me better deal with everyday life and the 3 things i deal with everyday.

So i guess you can say catfishing is a tool to me and away of life it's the tool i use to help better deal with things. and it has been my way life over 25 years now.

I like to go fishing to relax and forget about the stresses of everyday life. I like going around sundown, I take a little radio with me that usually has Pink Floyd in it. When I fish, I can forget about everything else, with a clear sky and bright stars, Floyd in the background and the cats to keep me company, I am off in a world where nothing or no one can bother me. Fishing for me is more than a hobby. I really can't explain the relaxation I get when fishing, when I was having some personal problems about 2-3 yrs. ago, fishing was the only time I fealt 'normal' again. I would have to say that fishing was one of the main reasons I am still here today, with my life being better than I have ever dreamed of. Fishing really kept me together in times when I thought that nothing could go right in my life. I could go on forever, I think you guys get the point. I just know that fishing is more than a sport, hobby, etc.. It is a way of life. I'm sorry for rambling, but I really wish I had a better way with words. :)

The adventure of possibly catching a biggun, its fun and relaxing at the same time, reminds me of going out fishing with my Dad before he died, good fun for the family
