30 Days of Preparing for Spring Storms and the Stinging Heat of Summer Day 16: Fishing Basics

There is something calming and pleasantly rewarding about fishing, even on days I don’t catch anything. Fishing is a fun affair, regardless of your age. Beginning fishing does not require a lot of skill, nor do you have to invest in a bunch of expensive equipment to get started. However, you will need a rod, reel, line, tackle and bait. Before doing anything, though, first purchase a state fishing license and check your state’s regulations and laws regarding fishing on public lands. This quick start guide gives you the basics.

Camping & Survival

Camp Like Champ!

Even though I’m a very independent woman, I’m not afraid to admit there are things that I just don’t do when single. Camping was one of them until my best friend in college and I decided we needed to float the Guadalupe River. This trip required an overnight stay in a campground. In a tent. Without electricity. She grew up participating in Camp Fire and had all the skills needed for us to not only have a fun, but also a successful and safe camping trip. Since then, I have not let anything stop me from spending a few nights out on the lake camping with the girls. With a few basic skills and equipment, you can too!

Air guns, particularly air rifles, make excellent target, hunting and competitions rifles.

Try a New Hobby During the Ammo Shortage: Archery, Fishing and Air Guns Provide Satisfaction and Enjoyment

One of the reasons I love shooting so much is the visible and tangible reward of my improvement. Other outdoor pursuits such as boating, hiking and camping offer mental rewards, but you have nothing to show for it besides a smile afterward. If you’re itching to find a hobby that offers the same documentable achievement while you ration your ammo, why don’t you give archery, fishing or air guns a try? All three offer enjoyment and sense of accomplishment like shooting and hunting. Plus, every member of the family can learn all three skills.

Gearing Up for Bowfishing

The weather should just be getting ripe for bowfishing. Never tried it before? Who cares? You get to shoot fish! When bowfishing, the action can be fast and for most shots you will be snap shooting, not aiming. Do not think of a rifle and scope but more of throwing a football. When throwing a football, you just look at the target and let it rip. You’ll want to do the same when bowfishing. When you see your target, pull back and let string go—grip it and rip it style!
