  • ive been fishing most of my life, and like many outdoorsmen i want to share one of my favorite pass times with others. so my gir

    ive been fishing most of my life, and like many outdoorsmen i want to share one of my favorite pass times with others. so my girlfriend has shown interest in fishing, but has seemed skepticle about taking it up. she isnt squeemish about baiting the hook or touching the fish or any of that but she still seems cautious. any suggestions on how i can get her started?

      Plan the trip for her comfort. Women don't like to sweat, get bitten by bugs or get dirty. When I fish in summer, I pack a small hunting chair with a back, wet wipes for dirty hands and private breaks, bug repellent, snacks and drinks. On a boat, don't forget a blanket and sun shade. Women, like kids, need to be shown the fun to be had for them, not just for you. And don't forget the kisses and praise. We love that!!!

        My wife enjoys fishing. But, if I want her to go, and most times I do, then I need to pack along some creature comforts.

          turn it into a nature lesson. teach her about the difference in fish species and point out birds, animals and kinds of trees. obviously don't do it too an extreme but throw some of that in there nonchalantly and next time you ask her to go fishing she might go more so for that reason.

            All good ideas posted; pay the most attention to Tuesday Stine; she knows of what she speaks.

              Like Nike says, just do it. She will either like it or not, but you will never know until you go.

                  Try going to a private farm pond. There are usually alot of bluegills that are fairly easy to catch so she wont get bored.

                      I don't know how it would relate to fishing, but I read that a good way to get your woman to watch sports(and thusly be allowed to watch sports) is to make it personal. ie: That quarterback is dating this supermodel. Maybe research which celebrity women are fisherpeople.
