FishTravelEat.com is a lifestyle website dedicated to exploring three of the best things in the world.
Inspiration for the site came from thinking about how much we enjoy to fish, travel and eat. We enjoy them that much more when the occasional adult beverage enters the mix.
It turns out that fishing, traveling and eating are connected– and that connection makes life better. The internet must have a site dedicated to distilling these benefits and experiences– after all, it is the year 2020.
We looked everywhere we could think of—from old fashioned libraries to the bottom of the dark web—in search of some place that provided such information. We couldn’t find anything.
In fact… we couldn’t even find a place on the internet where you can reliably find a fishing story worth reading.
Over the course of our research we became inspired. We couldn’t find something that we’d like to read, so we made a website ourselves.
Here are the conclusions that led to FishTravelEat.com
- Fishing stories should be entertaining—not click bait lists of nonsense designed to sell fishing poles that fit into your glove box.
- Travel and adventure are necessary components of life.
- Fishing is good for kids and their development. There should be a site that describes this. There are plenty of sites that sell tablets and video games for three year olds… why not fishing?
- Fishing is good for people and their emotional wellness. My wife is a psychotherapist… I think I can trick her into writing about this kind of thing.
- When you search for a seafood recipe online, shouldn’t there be an option that comes from a person who could tie on a circle hook? These days the only way to ensure that the fish that you’re eating is the fish that you think it is (and not tilapia or basa), is to catch the damned thing yourself.
- Anti-fishing protesters should not have the moral or intellectual high ground when it comes to fishing and whether or not it is a good thing to do.
We divide our approach into six categories: Fishing Stories, Food Stories,
(Mis)Adventure & Travel, Kids & Fishing, Fishing & Emotional Wellness, and Events.
Try telling Ernest Hemingway that a fishing story has to consist only of how many bites you had, how many fish you caught and what color spinner bait you should use. I for one am not buying it.
“The Attack Tunas of Panama” may well be the best fishing story I’ve been part of. We’ve got a bunch of others in the pipeline.
A successful fishing trip provides the perfect excuse to dirty a frying pan or to fire up the grill. Stories here will tell you how to make the most of what you catch and eat.
Our first installment is “Chef Cosmo Goss’ Fish Tricks.”
Few things in the world stimulate growth of perspective as thoroughly as travel. Fishing, in its very essence, makes perhaps the best excuse in the world to travel. (Just ask my wife… she’s heard them all!)
This is your place for stories of far off destinations, memorable travel tales (both good and bad) and adventures spawned by the passion to catch fish.
“The Fishing Passport” is our first installment…
When it comes to raising children, most every parent’s goal is the same. The universal objective is to raise healthy, well-adjusted kids.
Fishing has a number of qualities that make it quite useful to this end. “Why Fishing is Good For Kids” is the first in a line of many articles…
Our world is a stressful place defined by hyper scheduling , over stimulation and constant distraction. The search for peace of mind is a constant one for many.
We believe that fishing provides a vehicle for personal and emotional fulfillment.
Sound crazy? Perhaps, but…
Stories in this section provide modern context for an ancient Babylonian proverb that rings as solidly today as it has for thousands of years– “The Gods do not deduct from a man’s allotted span the hours spent fishing.”
“I Hope the Hippies Are Not Right” is the category kick off here.
It can be hard to find the fishing trip you are looking for by searching online. Fish Travel Eat Events takes the guess work out of the process.
We’re rolling out a lineup of great events and get togethers in some of the places we’ll be writing about. Join us.
Let’s fish, travel, and eat together… Who knows, we’ll probably have a drink or two also.
Our first one is a tuna fishing trip in Panama in April 2021. Check out our buddy Captain Shane Jarvis’ private island operation in Panama.
What FishTravelEat.com is Not
Oh… and one more thing.
These days, everything in the world demands that you support some cause or other. Somehow everything demands some form of moral commitment to social responsibility or ethical awareness or political ideology.
Everyone and everything demands you act or think or believe a certain way. You can’t even ask for a recommendation on where to buy a puppy without some jerk off telling you that you should go to the shelter.
FishTravelEat.com is dedicated to having fun, seeing the world, and catching fish. Our content is designed to help others do the same.
