The corona virus has left many fishermen unable to enjoy time with friends, leading to a lack of social distancing and fishing. The pandemic has caused less fishing pressure, potentially leading to cleaner waters, healthier habitats, and more fecund fish stocks. However, many fishermen have been unable to get out, and the impact on ecosystems will be seen over time.
Fishing requires a deep understanding of the fishery and techniques, and learning from other experienced fishermen can change your perspective. Interacting with fishermen from around the world broadens your horizon and allows for knowledge exchange, regardless of skill level. Observing variation and incorporating tips from others can help grow as an angler.
