My favorite fishing magazines

Posted in Reading is Breathing

 

If fishing is your favorite leisure activity, there is no doubt that you already put in enough effort to make as many fishing trips as possible and bought all necessary gear to help you catch the prey. However, a great part of the fishing experience consists of spending endless hours being patient and waiting for the fish to take the bait.

I don’t know about you, but I tend to get bored, especially since you can’t really talk to your peers in order not to scare the fish. So what do I do to make time pass by easier? I prefer getting my information from old-school paper magazines. Here are some of my favorite that I recommend you to take on your next fishing trip.

Sport Fishing Magazine

The Sport Fishing Magazine is my number one recommendation because there are many informative articles on everything related to this leisure activity. Here you’ll find everything you need from the fastest and most popular fishing boats of the moment to new gizmos and gadgets to help you catch more fish.

There is also a special section dedicated to the coolest fishing destinations in the world, so you’ll never run out of ideas when you plan your future trip with your fishing buddies. Check out their website too before getting a subscription.

 

Outdoor Life

The Outdoor Life Magazine is perfect for all nature enthusiasts. It covers numerous outdoor activities, including hiking, camping, hunting, boating, and fishing, and comes with useful tips and plenty of interesting cover stories. The magazine also delivers articles written by experts so you can rest assured everything you read is verified and applicable.

You’ll also get the chance to read about the newest travel destinations and the greatest outdoor equipment you can purchase, so make sure to subscribe as soon as possible.

SaltWater Sportsman

Want to learn everything about fishing in the ocean or in other salt waters across the globe? The SaltWater Sportsman is the perfect magazine to improve your overall fishing experience. From the latest fishing gear to exciting new destinations and plenty of great articles about the ocean life in general, the magazine comes with plenty of novelties each month, so make sure to subscribe to it.

 

Fly Fisherman

My last recommendation has to be the Fly Fisherman because, just as the name suggests, it mainly focuses on fly fishing, one of the easiest, most convenient, and affordable types of fishing. The publication offers great advice on new rods, fly fishing techniques and, if you check the online edition, you’ll also have access to useful videos specifically dedicated to newbies.

In addition, this magazine also features some of the most popular angler forums where you can share everything you want with other fishing enthusiasts and learn from their experience.

A good book is a perfect companion when you want to spend your free time in a relaxing way. This hobby is accessible and has many benefits: it helps you gain knowledge, improves your vocabulary, unleashes your creativity and opens your mind.

Through a book, you can step into fantasy world anywhere: at home, at the beach, in public transport or in the park. This means that you can read your favorite novel whenever you feel like it. Sometimes, a little help could be necessary, especially if you are up for some bedtime reading and you don’t want to disturb your partner.

In any case, if you are looking for gadgets that can expand your reading time and make it even more enjoyable, you have come to the right place. We have some cool ideas and they can serve as inspiration even when you want a gift for a bookaholic.

  1. An e-book reader is the best way to have an entire library with you anywhere. This device is easy to use and carry, so you can upload many literary and non-literary writings on it, according to your needs;
  2. Illuminating reading glasses – like the name says, this gadget combines the glasses you usually use for reading with a book lamp, so you will have a practical object that helps you notice details and small letters (on maps, for example);
  3. The clip-on reading light – like the above mentioned reading glasses, it is perfect when you want to read in bed without disturbing your partner. You can attach the clip on your regular glasses or pyjamas, switch it on and enjoy the moment;
  4. A book light is another useful gadget if you like to read at night; you can choose your favorite from various available options and many of them can be attached with a clip;
  5. A bookmark is a must-have if novels are among your best friends. On the market you will see them in all shapes and sizes; you can even buy digital ones, so check them and buy one or more;
  6. A reading magnifying glass is another useful gadget; people who face some eyesight issues use it with books, magazines or newspapers;

  1. Book-shaped lamps will stimulate you to read more and more every day; when you see them shining, you simply can’t help it!
  2. If you have always dreamed that you are a character from your favourite story, now you can be one if you ‘live’ in a book-shaped tent. If this doesn’t put you in the right mood, what will?
  3. The adequate reading atmosphere can be created in a quiet, relaxing place. You can get your senses in the proper mood by using thematic scented candles; you can choose one or more from various shapes, colours and flavors.

In this article, we only mentioned a few gadgets that can improve your reading moments, but, of course, there are more. Start looking for yours and keep loving books!
