My mom helped teach me how to fish at a local pond, just the basics, then i had some friends that helped teach me some more... and also some trial and error lol but mostly my mom. Her family used to have a sailboat so she picked up fishing when on the boat.

My Uncle. He was an avid outdoorsman and fisherman and started taking me at a young age (5) fishing for pickerel in NJ with red and white spoons. From there, we went to saltwater and fished for flounder and, believe it or not, blowfish (which are delicious). Fun memories.

It gives you time to think ,  if you’re not with your friends? If you need to get time to think, there’s almost no better place than while fishing. It can be a powerful time for reflection and meditation. When I’m alone by a stream, my mind and body relax, and I’m free to connect ideas, follow random trains of thought, and dream.

My Dad died when I was young but I had a friend whose dad drove 4 hours to the coast every weekend during King season on NC coast.  Whenever he could (or when he could tolerate us) he would take his son and my brother with him.  He taught me how to pier and surf fish.  He died of lung cancer years ago but I remember him every time I go fishing.
