Fishing is one of the most accessible outdoor sports in todays world. Nearly anyone, no matter age, income level or even fitness level, can easily participate. The sport is no longer the boys’ club it was once thought of either. There’s also growing age and ethnic diversity within the sport.
Whether they grew up heading out onto the lake every Sunday with Grandpa or are one of the millions trying the sport for their very first time, those who fish have a direct connection to health and well-being.
Fishing can assist in keeping you physically fit.
While fishing itself isn’t necessarily going to get your heart rate up, many of the best fishing spots require a bit of paddling, biking or hiking to reach, all of which have proven cardiovascular benefits to your body. Even just getting out there, you’ll still get the benefits of the outdoors and maybe that’s the beginning of a new fit, healthy lifestyle.
