  1. I was thinking about going out with my son later in the week to fish. That is why I am glad to learn that fishing can help in keeping us fit and increase our family bonding which makes it a worthy activity to pick up as you have mentioned. I’ll be sure to keep this in mind and even try to have him get my grandchild to join us. Thanks!
