My cool hobby


Special to the Saipan Tribune

My cool hobby is swimming. It is cool because I’m influencing people to become healthy and strong and, it tones muscles, and build up strength.

Swimming also helped me how to be nice and good to other people. It taught me how to cooperate with people to complete the task.

Swimming made me mature enough to choose what I want to do in the future. This hobby helped build my strong faith, that through God’s help, I can win and become a champion.

My cool hobby made me brave enough to travel to another country like Japan without my parents. My cool hobby helped me collect gold medals and trophies in every competition I joined in. This is my cool hobby that I would like to share.

Fishing is a really cool hobby. The first time I caught a fish was when I was 5 years old. It was an angelfish. One Saturday morning, my dad taught me how to fish and I ended up seeing shark pieces in the water. So now my favorite hobby is fishing. I seem to get better at it every time I go fishing.

Fishing is awesome. When you go fishing, you will have to prepare yourself with the proper gear. One could use a rod, spear, or Hawaiian sling. I prefer to use a fishing rod so fishes won’t see me easily.

You can use different kinds of bait for the fish you want to catch. There are several good places to fish on island. Before one fishes with a rod, they need to learn how to release, wheel up the line, and pull up the fish. When one can successfully do that, then they are ready to go fishing.

The exciting thing about fishing is when you catch one, pull up your catch and see it. I like seeing different kinds of fish. When I go fishing I throw the bait in different places to try my luck and to see where the fish are biting.

If the fish happens to be small I will throw it back in the water but if it is a big fish I will keep it.
