In an age where everything is done with a voice command or a touch of a button, learning how to fish gives you a skill that might just save your life.
Fishing puts you out in the wild and calls for you to master a set of different skills. There is more to fishing than just placing a worm on a hook you know.
We are betting that most fishermen have to drive a certain distance to get to their favorite fishing spot. Travel, even if it is just a few dozen miles, expands the mind and will make your life more fulfilling. In fact, fishermen are some of the most accomplished travelers. Face it, you would travel hundreds of miles if someone gave you the location of a great fishing spot.
As you can see, there are plenty of wonderful reasons you need to buy a fishing rod and reel combo and take the time to go fishing.
