Motivation 114

I suffer from some anxiety disorders - fishing is the only thing that grasps my entire concentration and allows me to forget my worries. It is also a time to be with my family and friends, and takes me to places that offer natural beauty that London often fails to!

Motivation 121

I love nature in all its forms and the changes in seasons can be seen at their best near the waterside. People have in the past thought angling was boring! I always explain to anybody with that view that if you get bored with seeing the wonders of the beautiful countryside, the creatures that inhabit it, the clear nights with more stars than you even knew you could see, then you are bored with life! Angling gives you the chance to experience all these things and experience excitement and good friendships for a lifetime.

Motivation 125

Pleasure angling is fishing with the reward being a fish of any species really, but bigger ones are appreciated :) It's also nice to have competitions between friends/family for fun, a lot of local/club matches I find are too serious and involve having to stay silent and get more bait for those hours than what I'd normally use in a month, and to me it's not really enjoyable. Although, I do fish some occasionally for something to do (or if i'm in need of some extra funding - £2-4 isn't much to stake, win OR lose).

Motivation 39

Being on your own is cool, being around people when you suffer from depression or stress is/can be helpful. Imagine a soldier returned from conflict. A quiet beach with someone to talk to IF he needs to is worth a lot.

Motivation 49

I just enjoy fishing for fishing's sake. I do it for a bit of 'me time' and new friends. I also do it for a bit of activity as well as to relax after having a major heart attack.

Motivation 52

To have a good day out among friends in the fresh air. Sometimes on the local pier and sometimes travelling a couple of hundred miles to try somewhere new, usually in beautiful surroundings. Catching fish helps make a good day better, but not essential. We usually have a bit of a walk but chill out on the mark.
