Definitely not - it is like, killing an animal - yes, I know, so IS fishing.
I remember clearly when we moved to acreage and our back yard was a river and we had our own jetty.
The first day I was there I went fishing - I LOVE FISHING - and in those days there was heaps of fish in the Murray River and I immediately caught one, brought it in and screamed as didnt know what to do, so I phoned my partner who was in the house to come down to the jetty and take it off.
Needless to say, eventually he told me if I cannot take the fish off the hook, do not fish!
I still couldnt do it -sort of scared me if they wriggled....hate it.

I cannot fish any more for that very reason. I have only ever fished three or four times and I hate it. I also don't like to eat fish so it's a win/win situation for the poor little fishies.

LOL and to think I had a fishing trip organised for when you come visit!!
by Finy
I'll watch you . . . hahahahahahahahaha!!

Oh I love fishing!!

But I am really bad at the whole 'catching' part. I can bait but I am the same as you Finy - I am not a fan of the wriggling lol.. This is why I always fish with others.
yea but, yea but as that English comedian would say - but I was so excited that I had my own jetty and river in back yard and could fish whenever I felt like it!
by Finy
lol Finy.
.. gee that sounds like a perfect backyard!
I have never been fishing, so I really don't know
That was always something I think us girls just hated!
I could never do it, but time has passed and well if we were hungry...needed to eat a fish, I would do it.
I don't like the idea of fishing, ergo I couldn't take a fish off the hook.

When hubby and me go trout fishing, he not only baits my hook, but, removes the fish from the hook. I just can't do it.
And then throws it back into the river/stream, I hope, littl.

Love fishing. Haven't been for ages but used to take myself out in the tinny & fish by myself, had my own rods & fishing creel, did it all. Have gone fishing alone from the jetty & caught lots of tommies, but on most jetty's there is usually others around. A solitary, almost meditation-like. Good, quiet time for thinking.
Fishing has never been in my field of interests at all!! It is the whole idea of killing the poor things which bothers me.What a hideous way to die....the opposite of drowning!!!! Funnily enough, I do enjoy eating fish....far more than read meat and chicken, actually!
Have never gone fishing. Love to eat fish but I would never be able to take it of the hook.
No, I haven't been successful in trying to take the fish off the hook in the past, I know I would end up with it in my finger, they are quite sharp.
I used to fish all the time, I can get the fish off the hook but my problem is killing it afterwards.
I fished at a trout farm once and they gave me a rolling pin type thing to "stun" them with after I caught them but I couldn't bring myself to do that either
So you throw them back in the pond I hope, Belinda!
by Miro
I made sure I always took someone with me who was willing to assist in the killing department :)
No, I haven't ever been fishing.
