99% of fishing is about just being on or by the water (sea, lake, river) and enjoying the peace and quiet. Catching a fish is a bonus, not the main aim. It's about quiet companionship, sharing a drink or just being alone. If you don't like that kind of thing, then fishing is not for you.
If you want to catch fish, then a huge net is the more effective way, rather than a rod and line, or go to the local fish place or supermarket.
