Fishing And Cigars Why Do They Go Well Together?
Fishing is one of the simplest pleasures in life.
We are not saying fishing is simple...
... On the contrary, fishing is an art. And like any other art, it is complex by nature. You need experience, training, and skill to succeed.
But, when you are fishing, it is only about one simple thing:
it’s about man versus nature.
It doesn’t matter if you are in a boat waiting to wrestle a 40 pound Yellowfin tuna in Costa Rica...
or if you are fly fishing and ready to reel in a 14 inch trout in the Gallatin River in Montana...
It’s not always about the catch of a lifetime or the thrill of fishing...
It’s always about you, nature, and the moment.
When you are thinking along those lines, then the “idea” of fishing is quite simple. Also, it is clear why so many fishing lovers are also cigar lovers.
People that do not enjoy fishing tend to not fully understand the reason why some are so passionate about it. And naturally, if you don’t get the reason behind their passion, you wouldn’t understand why they would also enjoy a cigar while doing what they love.
There are so many cigars brands, shapes and sizes that it can take a lifetime of smoking to become a connoisseur. In the fishing world, you practically also have an unlimited amount of choices when it comes to picking your next spot. In the words of Jack Nicklaus, one of the greatest golfers of all time:
"There are always new places to go fishing. For any fisherman, there’s always a new place, always a new horizon."
Despite all the choices, a cigar lover is not afraid to go back again and again to one of his or her favorite cigars.
In fact, it is not uncommon for some cigar aficionados to regularly smoke the same cigars, just like some fisherman have their favorite spots that they go back to again and again.
Fishing and cigars are, at an intimate level, all about reflection and enjoying the moment.
If the last time you wet a fishing line you enjoyed a cigar, you already know this. If you haven’t yet, maybe next time, pick up a couple of premium hand-rolled stogies and give it a try.
You will thank us for it.
