Why I Fish.
Rising with the sun. I head out onto the lake. For a morning of SUP fishing. But today. I catch the moment when the fog rises up. And meets the sky. The sun joining along. As if it was rehearsed.
Here I Pause.
To soak up this moment. As it quickly vanishes.
Some days the rewards are playful fish on the end of the line. Other days. Just moments shared with Nature.
But this time. Is why I fish.
Growing up on this lake. I have spent many of days cruising around fishing. But it has been sometime since I did it without the help of an engine.
Over the past year I started dabbling with stand up paddleboard fishing. A free moment. I’d sneak out, take a few casts. Maybe catch a fish.
But over the past few months I have truly began to enjoy the time on the water.
It has become a form of meditation. And an escape.
One of my favorite parts about stand up paddling is sharing time on the water with friends and family. No matter their ability levels.
And SUP Fishing is the same.
My nephews love “paddleboard fishing” as much as I do. We’ve ventured out together to share time on the water and catching a few fish.
Just another way to enjoy time with my family. Doing what I love.
