Angling, the Sport for Fishing

Fishing – act of catching fish.

Fishing for sport, recreation, and relaxation is called sportsfishing or angling, derived from the Old English word angel, meaning “fishhook”. Angling is one of the most popular forms of recreation in the world. People fish from shore and from boats, for almost every type of game fish (a fish that is prized for the sport involved in catching it). Fishing equipment, called tackle, is simple. The basic tools are a rod, a reel, fishing line, and hooks and lures. Because tackle is inexpensive and finding a place to fish is easy, almost anyone can fish. The sport provides a source of fresh food, and anglers also enjoy the time spent outdoors.
