There are many different forms of fishing and some types demand more skills and stamina than others. One that is a favorite of many is fly fishing. This requires special equipment such as a fly rod, a special type of line and a reel. The bait is simply an artificial fly. Casting is where the technique needs to be focused upon as there is quite an art to this.
It is now being shown that fly fishing can be very beneficial to disabled veterans in helping them to develop their fine motor skills. It is being used in some of the rehabilitation that these veterans require.
Over and above that fly fishing creates a challenge which helps to build self-esteem and allows anyone to relax and escape from the pressures of life.
Fly fishing takes a fair amount of stamina and this in itself helps to condition and build the body not only for the disabled but even for the individuals that want to stay healthy. Any type of fishing can be beneficial, but when it comes to an added challenge fly fishing has to go to the top of the list.
