So far it’s all been about the cheesy gifts, romantic walks, overpriced dinners and crowded bars. Valentine’s Day is so commercialised that it is now all about luxury, showering each other with expensive presents or cuddling at home with a pizza and a bit of Netflix. It is almost guaranteed that you will feel a tinge of disappointment, there are only so many times you can send or receive a cute teddy bear with an “I love you sign”

This year forget the vinegar and order the fish!

What’s more romantic than a fishing rod and waders, I can’t think of many things. Girls, swap your heels and purses for some waterproof fishing trousers and guys don’t worry about buying fancy footwear and try on some angler’s boots. This will get both of you looking your best and ready for the day. Most importantly instead of trying too hard to impress the other half, you can just relax and enjoy the look of your Valentine dressed in rubber.

What’s more romantic than the two of you at the side of a Thai lake, the sun shining down on you, or in a boat with the slow sway of the water throwing you closer to each other and your hands touching as you grab the fishing rod. You get to look into each other’s eyes, take in the potent smell of the grass around you and experience the unifying power of nature. The water might spray you both and then with no effort to you, you will get that natural wet look. Who needs all that pampering; just go fishing!

What’s more romantic than catching your own food and preparing it together to finish off your perfect day? After a day spent fishing, you get to go home with your own trophy and revel in your success. There is something about the wild, untamed beauty of the outdoors that will bring out the adventurous side in you, what a great thing to share with your Valentine. There is a reason that fish is an aphrodisiac. What’s more romantic than being able to send sexy, yet weirdly accurate Valentine’s cards with messages like “I’m hooked on you” or “You’re such a great catch” and my personal favourite

You’ve got me hook, line and sinker”.

Who doesn’t want to hear that? Let’s challenge the notion that there is only one-size-fits-all approach to romance and have yourself a fishtastic Valentine’s Day.You never know, after your day of fishing there might be two less fish in the sea !

If I have just described your perfect romantic getaway or maybe a Valentine’s Day you would like to try, there is an easy way to get you out there fishing, just check out your nearest tackle shop of fishing venue and experience a new kind of Valentine’s Day.
