encompass an amazing cross-section of the U.S. population, from all ages and income groups. However, as you'll also learn in this chapter, only a minority of the millions of fishermen are very good at it.

Welcome to the Party.

Imagine walking into a huge party and being introduced to all kinds of people whom you have never metpeople with different personalities and interests and backgrounds. Although you may like many of them, eventually you will gravitate toward one group of people with whom you are most comfortable, who you find most entertaining, or who challenge you with their ideas.

So it is with the world of fishing. There are so many areas and categories and specialities that the beginner may not know where to start. And I can't tell you that either; you'll have to find out for yourself what you like best. But I can tell you what's out there.

The first major classification of fishing is that of the water type: fresh water, which includes all ponds, lakes, reservoirs, brooks, creeks, streams, and rivers; and salt water, which covers oceans, bays, estuaries, tidal creeks, and rivers. The type of fishing you choose depends largely on the water you are fishing. The basic types of fishing (some of which are obvious) include:

Bank fishing. Casting from the shore (or a dock or pier) of a still body of water or a large river. Stream fishing. Casting from the shore or while wading in the water of a brook, river, or creek. Boat fishing. Casting from a boat anchored in the water. Drift fishing. Fishing from a boat that is being moved by wind, tide, or current.

Trolling. Fishing from a boat motoring slowly through the water. Surffishing. Casting from a beach into salt water.

Jetty fishing. Casting from a man-made structure that extends into salt water from shore.
