There is no better way for an angler to spend some time while bored at the office than looking at some good fishing memes.
A good book can be great with free time, but sometimes you just need a quick chuckle.
For me, they capture some funny but also very true points that describe life for us anglers and our deep connection with our addiction.
Our Favorite Fishing Memes
I love this one as it gives some “gentle advice” to those “other anglers” who tend to drive their boat right next to yours and hit the same fishing spot you’ve been catching fish on first.
Now, we know no fisherman can own part of a lake of the ocean, but go work it out for yourself.
We all know this feeling too well! You’ve spent all day looking for the right lure to use one morning and you finally find one that catches fish then you snag it on the bottom.
What do you do? There is only one choice, go for a swim and get it back so you can catch fish for the rest of the day.
When fishing isn’t your job but you’re seriously addicted, there is nothing you would rather do or anywhere you would rather be than being on the water with friends catching fish.
This meme is hilarious and it comes back to the point about people finding your secret spots and fishing them. Never share your secret spots and favorite fishing spot even with a close friend, keep it vague and your spots protected.
This is another great meme and something we have all done, well I have. When taking a picture of a fish for Insta, push it as close to the camera as possible and it triples in size. Of course, everyone knows this trick so you’re not fooling anyone.
When you invite a friend fishing and they aren’t that into it, they will look like this! Fishing isn’t for everyone and this meme captures that, especially when it’s ice fishing you invite them to do.
Another great pun on the life of an angler but also one that is often true. We fishermen are a different breed and this addiction or hobby needs to be met, even if it means canceling on family.
We have all been there when someone is never ready to go but you are. Just try standing next to an angler when they’re meant to stop fishing, they’ll be casting into the night if no one makes them leave.
Fishermen will do anything to get casting on a good looking bit of water and this captures it perfectly.
If you have ever lost a trophy then you’ll know what this meme means. I can barely sleep and will wake throughout the night thinking of what I could have done differently after losing a monster – it takes its toll!
Fly fishing is probably the hardest way anyone could catch a fish, and conventional anglers are always dubious, especially if fly fishermen are catching more than them!
Fishing gear isn’t cheap, it is super expensive and this meme rings true, especially for young anglers spending their allowance on hooks and bait.
This is a hilarious meme as we’d all buy our gear and write it off against our taxes if we could!
When the bailiff comes and you forgot to renew your license, you’ve got to get creative!
This is one of my favorite memes and something I would do if I had Moses’ powers – it would be too funny to do this to your buddy!
Thanks very much for spending time reading my article, I hope you enjoyed the fishing memes and giggled as much as I did.
They are quite hilarious while being true at the same time and all about something only anglers would understand.
