On the topic of fishing though, one thing I could never understand is why people are so attracted so it. I mean don't get me wrong I thoroughly enjoy but I really don't know why, because:
- You get covered in fish/squid guts. Which once the smell is on you, it just wont come off.
- The weather batters you. (Generally any day you want to go out fishing you can guarantee the weather will take a turn for the worse)
- Your body gets soaked
- You have to spend hours once you get home cleaning the saltwater of the equipment.
- All the money you spend on the gear.
I guess it's all to satisfy our hunter/gatherer instincs.
