Hi guys i am sure each one of us has gained something in ou lifes due to fishing,just mention 3 things that you have gained cause of this passion.
My 3 are
1)My wife(she loves eating fish just like any keralite and thought well here is someone who can provide fresh fish)
2)Patience
3)To fight anything all the way...just like the Ravas fighting all the way to da finish never giving up.

Lets hear it from the boys :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have more than 3.

Goods:
1. Patience - To move on thinking optimistically "I will catch a big one this time"
2. Social life - Making friends with a lot of like minded people and feeling that "Hey, I am not wierd, there are a lot of others like me"
3. Dreams - Fulfilling my dream of being a fisherman
4. Appearance - Looking fitter. Walking on rocks is good exercise

Bads:
1. Impatience - Waiting for the weekends
2. Social life - Reduced interaction with a lot of regular old friends who do not fish
3. Dreams - Not being able to focus on work to the fullest (with fishes on my mind) resulting in reduced competence in job
4. Appearance - Almost permanent tan

Loads of like minded fellas as friends,
and the great opportunity to access this forum.
many a times freezer full of fish.
and the wonderful experience of lying under a tamarind tree in the night listening to those night sounds (by the river side).
