I have been fishing for about 20 years. Over the last three years, I have started to take the sport/hobby much more serious. I have learned more in the last three then in the previous 17.

I have been fishing for 23 years. My Dad was talking me since I was about 2 years old and I take all three of my girls all the time. I started going by myself probably around eight. I would go up the canyon on my bike tie my fishing pole to my handle bars and put the worms in a plastic bottle and put it in the bottle holder. Good old memories.

Been fishing for about 35 years, dad would take me and my brothers out to the bay to sit on the rocks and fish for cats when I was just wee little. Now I take my 11 year old son as often as possible and my 6 year old daughter keeps asking when we are going ice fishing. Love being a dad.

I'm thinking probably about 65 years. I remember going to the creek on the farm, cutting a willow stick, tieing on some store string and a hook and a worm and catching fish. When I got my first zebco33 I wouldn't let my brother touch it. That old reel still works. My grandson used it about 10 years ago.

I don't know if it's the demo graph of this web page but I was really hoping to see more in the 5 - 15 year categories. Simply to see that our knowledge is being passed down from angler to angler, generation to generation. It's easy for someone to look at their own life or people they are surrounded by and think, well fishing and hunting are still going. The sport is thriving? But what about new faces? People outside of the tradition of these great sports and introducing the young people who have not had the chance to experience the great outdoors.

Total years has been 45 by the calendar. If you count my 24 and 72 hour fishing marathons, it would be closer to 70 years. Not bad for a 50 yr old. lolCool
