50 Best Fishing Blogs

Fishing is one of life’s most therapeutic experiences and can often be rewarded with a free dinner! According to the The Fish and Wildlife Service of the U.S. Department of the Interior, an estimated 13 million Americans participate in recreational fishing on a regular basis, and there may be  even more when you count the organized fishing trips available during a vacation.

In categorizing the 50 Best Fishing Blogs we appreciate that there is a huge overlap between fishing disciplines, so each section is not exclusive to that particular type of fishing – just a general guide. A lot of fishermen are also keep hunters, so we have included a section on that too, as well as some fishing conservation blogs which all anglers should read carefully.
