					Fishing as Family Activity

Many people love to go fishing, instead of playing tennis or golf. Others
make it their primary sport activity together with their families and
friends to relieve boredom and stress. Surveys say that more than 50
million Americans love to go fishing and make it their lifestyle option
instead of other sports.

In Alabama, fishing represents a substantial impact on the state   economy.
Hundreds of millions of dollars are represented and about 20,000   people
list fishing as their source of livelihood. However, most people   consider
it as a form of relaxation and a family activity. In general, it   is a
lifestyle option.

In the book titled “The Incomplete Psychology of Everyday Fishing;”
psychologist Paul G. Quinnett dedicated an entire chapter about fishing
as a source to relieve stress. In the chapter, “Ethics of Fishing” he
points out that a person must appreciate and enjoy the benefits of
nature. He also highlighted that fishing correct is a way for an
individual to become more disciplined in his lifestyle.

“Family Life First,” an organization dedicated to introducing how to
spend useful family time to parents for their children, have factual data
that in the past 20 years, 25 percent of a child’s playing time has
decreased. Outdoor activities, where most children spend their playing
time, have also declined by 50 percent. Since 1969 to 1996, 22 percent of
family time activities have lessened proven by the study of the White
House Council of Economic Advisers.

Any fruitful time to interact with your children is time worth investing.
Fishing is a way to connect. The quality time you get is really worth the
effort. The experience you get by catching fish is what makes it
wonderful to enjoy and that is the important part of fishing. There are
23 public fishing lakes having plenty of fish waiting to be caught. All
children can experience the excitement and adventure of fishing. You will
always remember the very first time you caught a fish, and the parent who
showed you how to catch it. You gain enjoyable and learning experiences
from fishing that makes it a great family activity.

Alabama, for example, promotes its lakes and open banks as places best
for fishing. You do not even need a boat to catch fish. There are also
stores where you can find what you need for fishing. You may bring your
family with you and the time of being together and enjoying the fun of
fishing is the best family activity you could have.
