Fishing is a great low stress and low impact sport that keeps the fisherman moving and active for an entire day. In addition to be a fun, relaxing, and relatively safe way to spend the day it is also a great way to stay active and healthy.
Benefits for the heart
Walking around your favorite fishing hole can be a great way to keep your heart rate up as you stroll around casting line after line. In addition to walking the act of reeling in a fish can also serve to keep your body in motion.
Benefits the Brain
Being outdoors and spending a few relaxing hours outside can be a great way to relieve stress. It also give the mind a chance to unplug and recharge which can give you more focus.
Benefits to the Body
Fishing is a great way to improve dexterity because it involves baiting a hook, casting a line, and reeling in the lines. This keeps your arms, fingers, and shoulders flexible and gives you a chance to use muscles that don’t see a lot of action day to day.
