While it can be exciting just to spend some time out on the water, the thrills of fishing really kick in when you finally get a bite. The surprising tug at the end of your line, the violent splashing in the water, there’s nothing like that one-on-one struggle with a fish.
The Amazon River is full of diverse wildlife, which makes it ideal for curious fisherman and nature enthusiasts who love surprises. And a terrifying surprise was exactly what professional fisherman Steve Townson found at the end of his line when he cast out into the river’s dangerous waters…
Fishing is a hobby that countless people enjoy. While you can absolutely catch massive fish if you know what you’re doing, for most people, fishing is about taking a time out from a fast-paced life to sit and think.
In fact, fishermen wait so much that when they do get a tug on their lines and reel in a big catch, there’s no other pay-off like it! Fishing requires a ton of patience, but those who are willing to wait reap major rewards.
