Fishing Competition

Out on the lake with your rod in hand, you tune your keen awareness into every little tick of the reel, losing track of time and place as you slip into a zen-like state. The other competitors carry on conversations while they sip beers, but you are now one with the fish and will surely surpass the other anglers. The earliest English essay on recreational fishing was published in 1496, shortly after the invention of the printing press. The authorship of this was attributed to Dame Juliana Berners, the prioress of the Benedictine Sopwell Nunnery. During the 16th century the work was much read, and was reprinted many times. Treatyse includes detailed information on fishing waters, the construction of rods and lines, and the use of natural baits and artificial flies. It also includes modern concerns about conservation and angler etiquette. Sport fishing competitions involve individuals if the fishing occurs from land, and usually teams if conducted from boats. A score is awarded for each fish caught. The points awarded depend on the fish's weight and species. Occasionally a score is divided by the strength of the fishing line used, yielding more points to those who use thinner, weaker line. In tag and release competitions, a flat score is awarded per fish species caught, divided by the line strength. This sound uses the following file from Freesound:
