The Therapeutic Benefits of Fishing

Many fans of fishing will tout it as a fun, leisurely activity that can be enjoyed by people of any age. But fishing is more than just for recreation, it may also have a positive impact on your overall health and wellness. According to a recent article from the Bulletin featured in the Miami Herald, a national group is using the therapeutic benefits of fishing to help breast cancer survivors as a form of therapy.

Casting for Recovery, a national non-profit with outlets throughout the country, is helping women heal from their bouts of breast cancer through fly fishing, a form of fishing that is popular in regions throughout the United States. According to statistics provided by the organization, over 70% of the women have never tried fishing before but many feel the effects of the fishing helping their overall wellbeing.

Every year, Casting for Recovery offers retreats for over 500 women so that they can help these women recover. Much of the project’s goals is to provide emotional support for the women. The retreats offer an opportunity to connect with other survivors who they can share their experiences of breast cancer with. But the fishing itself has a benefit as it provides a therapeutic boost for those who were afflicted in breast cancer. There is also a physical benefit accompanied with fly fishing for breast cancer survivors: the physical actions done during fly fishing are very similar to those doctors recommend to do during physical therapy.

With so many therapeutic effects for those who participate in fishing, there is no reason you shouldn't try it for yourself if you have never done it. Not only is it a calming activity that could give you an emotional boost but the physical exertion done during fishing can be beneficial as well. As the top rated Miami Deep Sea Fishing Charter, THERAPY-IV provides daily charters from Haulover Marina for those looking to fish out in the open sea.
