Rudyard fisherman

Angler at Rudyard Lake

I don't understand angling.  One sits all day (usually completely alone) - in all sorts of weathers - and ... little happens. 

But I understand it's one of the biggest participant sports in the country.  Is it a form of meditation?  A chance to get away from the world? 


  1. I have never understood its appeal. In Canada a lot of fisherman also engage in ice fishing over the winter on frozen lakes and rivers.

  2. It is definitely a chance to get away. Hope you didn't interrupt his revery with idle conversation. That seems to be frowned upon. (speaking from experience, here!)
