One reason for going fishing is that many kinds of fish are very good to eat. Most of the time, even if a person does not even catch a fish, it is just plain fun trying.

Usually, a fishing pole is rigged with fishing line and a hook, with some sort of bait fastened to the end of the line on a hook to catch the fish. When the fish goes after the bait, it gets caught on the hook and you reel him in. Sounds very simple to do but it is more complex than it looks.
