I have always found the whole idea of fishing very interesting. We lived close to a river many years ago and there was a lot of fishing going on there. It was always fun to watch how busy the river got on some days, especially in the warm summer months. Fishing is so popular in my town with the locals and it is super easy to see why. Spending time by the water, away from the hustle and bustle of the world is so relaxing. I like spending time outdoors and I love activities that keep me busy in nature.
