The Hidden Benefits of Fishing

By: Kate Hudson

Fishing is a great hobby that anyone can enjoy and that is appealing in many ways. Anyone can enjoy the peaceful distraction of fishing, and if you're a fan then you don't need to tell me how addictive it can be and how satisfying it is too reel in a big catch.

But then there are some other hidden benefits of fishing too that you might be less aware of. Fishing is good for you and your lifestyle in many ways, so let's look at some of the hidden advantages you're probably enjoying without even realizing it...


Fishing is good for your health in more ways than one. Of course the fact that you're outside means that you're getting fresh air and lots of sun and this is obviously going to be good for you in a number of ways. Then there's the psychological advantage of getting some alone time with your thoughts and with no pressures or stresses turning off your phone and just enjoying your surroundings is incredibly good for your psychological well-being and your blood pressure and it's something that many of us don't do enough.

Then though there's also the benefit of the fish if you eat any of what you catch that is. Fish are filled with proteins, are low in fat and are high in essential fatty acids which makes them good for your joints, skin and even your brain.


Fishing is brilliant because it doesn't require your full attention. Once you've set up the line you can then just sit by it and wait for the bite which of course means you have your hands and your attention free. That makes it the perfect opportunity to catch up on some reading if you need to, to call friends and manage your correspondence or to read the morning paper. If you struggle to get a moment to yourself, then fishing is the perfect excuse to be left alone with your thoughts. Though that said, if you want to go with a partner or a friend then this is also a great way to get some quality time with them and to have a catch-up.


If you're fishing then that means you'll be going to lots of scenic locations and enjoying a great view. Make sure that you don't squander this and just focus on the fish drink in your surroundings and enjoy the fact that you're somewhere beautiful.

In fact you can also take this opportunity to engage in an artistic pursuit which could mean sketching or painting your surroundings, or maybe doing some photography. At the same time though, if you're someone who travels a lot, then fishing will give you a great way to experience the new destination and a great activity that you can enjoy in any country to get more from your holiday.


When you meet a fellow fisher, you'll find that it's almost like being a member of an exclusive club and instantly you'll have loads to talk about and you'll find that you make fast friends. A great way to break the ice and get chatting to strangers.
