I love all aspects of fishing, wildlife {otters are not in my good books}, meeting walkers, having a laugh! Peace, quiet, newcomers, sharing good fishing with others.

Motivation 117

Fishing is for relaxing, and enjoyment, and catching fish is a bonus, and although it is nice to catch big fish, and lots of fish, it is not the be all and end all of a fishing trip. Alternatively nobody wishes to blank every trip!

Motivation 124

The all round fishing experience, ie preparing to go, getting tackle ready, bait etc; deciding on what type of fish to go after - pike, perch, zander or carp, roach, bream; and the "banter" - is this the day for your personal best etc…

Motivation 30

For me, angling is an holistic experience which goes way beyond the bullet points of the survey. There is also a deeply metaphysical aspect which has not been touched upon, plus in my case, the desire to pass on to others the skills and philosophy of the Sport which has given me so much for over half a century.

Motivation 36

Due to illness I rely on fishing to motivate me and exercise my mind and self esteem. Passing on knowledge and helping in a local club gives me purpose to not be house bound and also helps me do something constructive for the environment; help juveniles and others learn & enjoy the sport for its wider picture in environmental, social and activity and not just catching fish.

Motivation 48

Catching fish as such is not so important. What is important is that there should be fish rising or coming to the fly to maintain an interest and sense of challenge.

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.

Just being there' is most important to me, I generally fish quiet scenic venues for this reason, where catching is almost secondary, although the occasional big carp is nice!

Angling is a rather more holistic activity and experience for me than your responses allow me to describe. It is an old chestnut, but there is far more to angling than catching fish.
