Fishing is a great outdoor hobby to pick up. With some research, basic gear, and casting line you can be well on your way to catching your first fish. Local resident Laura Miller chimes in: “Fishing is such a fun activity any time of the year. I especially love bundling up on a wintery morning, grabbing some coffee, and fishing from the Avalon Fishing Pier while catching the sunrise. Fish are always a bonus, but the fresh air, views, and good company are a guarantee that makes me so thankful for the beautiful place we live!” Take a page from Miller’s book and get outside for the thrill of the catch as well as an opportunity to appreciate the beautiful shore.
