Fishing Is The Best Sport In The World

HAYWARD, Wis. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Fishing isn’t just a boring, old man’s sport.

So says Emmett Brown, executive director of the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame and Museum in Hayward, Wisconsin, which houses thousands of fishing artifacts, including a structure shaped like a leaping fish that’s as long as a whole city block.

According to Brown, fishing gets a lot of undeserved flack for being a humdrum hobby.

He says, “Those who say fishing is boring have probably never gone fishing. Is it fast-paced like NASCAR? Probably not, but it’s certainly fulfilling.”

Brown insists that fishing is “the perfect way to slow down a little bit and get in touch with your surroundings,” and the “the No.1 sport” of all time.

He says, “Not everybody has played basketball, baseball, football, but I bet they’ve all gone fishing at least once in their lives. You still can do it once your knees give out.”
