angling

fishing rules club governing

The sport of catching fish, one of the world's most popular pastimes, performed in virtually every country, practised with a rod, line, and hook. Many forms of angling exist: freshwater fishing, fly fishing, game fishing, and deep sea fishing. The oldest fishing club still in existence is the Ellem Club in Scotland (founded 1829). Rules governing the time of year when different types of fishing take place are very strict, as are the rules governing the type of, and excessive use of, bait.
