Even though I have also spent valuable time with myself, some of the memories that have remained vivid in my heart involve spending time with loved ones. I will always cherish these moments. I loved going to the zoo and hanging out with my dad when I was a kid, but I never got to do one of my favorite things until I went abroad and met my Ukrainian buddy, who changed the game for me.
I remember meeting him so casually, but as we spent more time together and did so many fun activities, my urge to explore and go on trips increased. We traveled together and visited different riversides, which is where I fell in love with fishing. I remember catching my first fish and celebrating my win by gifting it to a little girl that came sightseeing with her dad.
Even though I enjoy fishing very much, there were a few weather limitations that prevented us from going fishing on a regular basis. Winter can be one of the least crowded times to go fishing. But because the colder months last longer than the warm months, the cold was one of the factors that kept me from going fishing on a regular basis. I went on a fishing trip with my partner. It was supposed to be a getaway where we could get to know each other better, but everything got boring because I wasn't dressed right, and was so cold that we had to cut the trip short. So, if you want to go fishing, make sure to keep warm by following these tips.
- If you've ever gone out in the winter without eating, you'll definitely be able to relate to the reality that being hungry makes you feel even colder than you already are. Because of this, you should eat very well and have snacks with you. Snacking causes your stomach muscles to contract, which heats up your core. When your core is warm, more blood is pushed to your extremities, including your hands and feet.
- Put on several wool or synthetic layers from top to bottom. Cotton is hard to dry; when going fishing, avoid wearing cotton. Wear a warm hat, use a scarf, preferably a buff, to cover your neck area, and gloves to protect your hands. It is better to wear a waterproof jacket with a hoodie.
- Hot beverages are the way to go. The warmth that comes from drinking hot chocolate or coffee is always appreciated.
- Use rechargeable hand warmers (gloves) to keep your hands warm. It increases blood flow and makes it easy to hold the fishing rod. It is cheaper to buy them during the summer.
- Everything should be ready the night before. If you go fishing and then start tying knots, your hands get cold.
- Take off your gloves before placing your hands in the water, and try not to keep your hands wet for an extended period of time. Furthermore, bring a towel with you so that you can dry your hands if they become wet.
- Fishing is a relaxing hobby that can be made much more enjoyable by ensuring that you have the necessary equipment. When it comes to catching fish (carp), fishing boilies are practical and convenient. Fishing boilies bulk buy saves money and Preferably 12 mm-14 mm hook bait.
- Use a catch-and-release tool to avoid getting your hands wet or touching the fish.
- Lastly, to keep ice from forming on the rod the night before going fishing, apply the paste, lip balm, or Lemon Pledge wipes. This saves you the time of having to always remove ice from the rod.
