Fishing is a technique that has been used for thousands of years. You need patience, someone older to teach you, gear, and hook sets.

Well-known fish are snappers, bass, panfish, whales, dolphins, pufferfish, green spotted pufferfish,and barrcuda.

The methods and tackles have evolved slowly. Not until the late 15th century did sport fishing, as it is now known, really begin. In 1496, 'A Treatyse of Fysshynge wyth an Angle' first gave details in English about using a fishing rod.
