The Evolution of Fishermen: Old vs New

The Evolution of Fishermen: Old vs New

Fishing is a popular hobby for people all over the world. For some, it is the chance to sit back in a desert area and relax as their rod gets to work. For others, it is the chance to explore the world, discovering exotic fishing spots and the aquatic creatures that come with it. No matter what the reason is, there are some noticeable trends towards fishing that have changed through the years. What once started as a task with makeshift tools is now something rather more developed and accessible for anyone. This infographic will take you through the changes between old fishermen and new fishermen; which habits do you prefer?

One of the most noticeable differences seems to be the enhancement in technology. Back in the day, there were no cameras to show off your biggest catch or update your friends on what you’re doing with the day. Instead, you were likely to have a drink in hand and enjoy the amazing displays on offer. Nowadays, a fisherman is likely to be found with his 1080p camera, hiding behind the lens every time something worth documenting happens. Although this provides great memories to look back on, it’s likely that the full experience that old fishermen got is not something that new fisherman experience as much. Of course, some fishermen enjoy this hobby for the pure fact that they can escape society for a bit, so it doesn’t apply to everyone.

Another noticeable difference is how much clothes for fishing has changed over the years. In fly fishing in particular, old fishermen could be found dressed rather smartly; in tweed jackets and caps. This was all part of the traditional fishing nature, but would be seen as impractical in this day and age. The majority of new fishermen will be found in their waterproof gear, prepared for harsh conditions and not taking any risks.

It might be sad to see how traditional fishing has changed over time, but it’s popularity continues to rise and modern advancements have made it possible for anyone to enjoy. Check out the infographic for more changes between fishermen old and new!
