Does anyone else ever see fishing as a get away from stress, bad work days, anxiety, etc? Sure it is a fun sport, I mean I will even fish on the bass charter when we go to Disney World for vacation in January. But I also like it to relieve all sorts of negativity. It is so relaxing and the fact that it is a year round sport and my family loves it, makes it that much better. :-)

It's a HUGE "out" for me. The chance to be alone, outside, doing something that I love, and maybe catching a few is the stress relief that I need sometimes.

O yea I think a majority of us do.

My wife said if my car and clothes weren't dirty and smelling like fish she would think that I am cheating on her whenever I go fishing early morning or at night. She was like if you are they are some grimey females lol. The best thing for a fishermen who is married is a wife who supports their hobby I love my wifey!

For me 50% of my passion for fishing is being able to get away, clear my mind, and have some Me time. I live in an ocean of estrogen though so any time I can get away from the house it's an "out". Lol.

My wife and I are both 30. Our daughter will be 7 this month and we all love to fish!!! However I take fishing as an out from my school and work schedule as well. Once I'm on the water, that other junks stays out of the way for the time I fish. Even when I get done fishing, I have a clearer mind and feel better. ;-)

It's good to get out by yourself sometimes and be totally alone for a while.

It keeps me busy, I like the challange it brings and the work I have to do to achive the goals involved. I don't get stressed out.

Everyone's different though.

Yup, the 'out' part is the bigger side for me, as in " I need to get out'.

Bass fishing to me is like yoga to a yogi. Bass fishing is my "out" I love my family very dearly, however, every so often I need to plug out and just go bass fishing. When I come back home from a long trip , I will be exhausted, but clear minded.

It's definitely my out! Just being on or near water does it for me!

Sometimes I do. During the school year I just love being on the water, relaxing and having a good time. During the summer, though, I get serious and whenever I am on the lake I mean business lol.

Yes, it is, but is not always an out for me.

Yes fishing is like exercise. It helps relax you, distracts you, & helps relieve stress until you loose a big one.

I like to fish alone.  I need and like my alone time.  Some times the entire rest of the world seems nuts.

Yep. I've been out there before just daydreaming, slow retrieve, and BAM! But I was late on the hook set. :-/

I never thought of it as an out, just something I love to do. I don't get to do it enough to actually consider it as an out to be honest. I play pool three nights a week in a league too. I love it but it's just something I do, not necessarily an out. However, if an out means "is it better than work"? Absolutely!!

I think we all have our escapes or reasons for needing one now and then. If fishing is yours then you've certainly chosen a good one!

Definitely an out for me...something I'm really enjoying the learning process with, complete yang to the yin of my noisy gym of elementary aged kids, getting back to nature, etc.

It is for me to an extant I try for it to get out as a stress relief but it just seems to be more stressful my phone constantly rings the ex wife bugs me more now then when we were together. I get out on the water start catching fish and then some thing happens with my boys or they cry for me and I have to come back. Sadly I've lost some of my love for fishing or enjoyment because I haven't enjoyed myself on the water in some time but I definitely try and use it as an out to deal with some stress

I'd have to come to an agreement not to call while I'm fishing. It's one thing to have an emergency but for trivial things...yeah I wouldn't be happy.
