Fishing is a very ancient and popular craft that dates back about 40 000 years ago.

Throughout the history of life on Earth, man has struggled for existence, as production of food was the most important lesson for survival. Primitive people were engaged in hunting, gathering and fishing in search of food. The first human settlements were discovered near the rivers and on the coasts of seas. Therefore, fishing and seafood were one of the main conditions in the struggle for existence. After all, lakes, seas and rivers were filled with abundant stocks of food. There were not only different fishes but also various crustaceans, mollusks and algae.

• Then man understood that at the shallow water it is better to catch fish with a stick with sharpened end. Therefore, there was some semblance of a harpoon

• Next, people became more enlightened and realized that the fish easier to catch in shallow ponds. The man was building a dam, which got the fish. Then he blocked exit and drain the water.

• The invention of networking was the next stage in the development of fishing. Before people invented ropes, nets had been woven of thin branches, vines or bamboo shoots.

• Well, later people figured out how to catch fish with a hook. Of course, the first hooks were rather primitive and they were made of bone, stone or wood and attached to a thin stick.




In order that the fishing will bring you only joy and good mood, you need to remember about safety rules. It often happens that in nature you can cut, prick, or have you a headache, so every amateur angler needs to have a first aid kit.
