Happiness is a rod in the hand
Angling is therapy for the mind and for me it encompasses everything in tree huggers post.
I love angling
my mind can engage with it, trial's and tribulations of problem solving.
excercising the mind and physically too exercise and fine movements.
learning my current limitations and trying too expand apon them.
Being as close as i can be too nature, enjoying it and seeing it and learning from it.
Ocasionally but not always the most important part the capture and return of a fish unharmed through my efforts.
