(ARA) - When mothers fish with their children, they spend quality time with together. Once mom gets hooked on fishing, she'll want to go again and again. And that's good for the whole family. Dozens of studies have shown that involvement with family members and friends consistently ranks among the top five reasons for people to go fishing. Often this reason ranks first.

I'd like to see more women -- mothers and non-mothers alike -- take up the sport or go out fishing more often with their husband and children, by themselves with their children, or with a friend. To help smooth the way, here are some thoughts to assuage a few common fears of many women new to fishing.

It's difficult or complicated.

No more so than most other activities. It's a diverse sport, however, and if you walk into the fishing tackle section of Wal-Mart or K-Mart, you'll probably feel overwhelmed and will not get much guidance from sales people .

The way to overcome this is to go fishing with an experienced angler to get an introduction to local methods, places, equipment and the like. Hiring a guide is expensive (between $200 and $400 for a day), but it can be money well-spent, especially if you use that day not just to catch fish, but to learn some of the basics and the intricacies of the sport. Guides are not available everywhere, so you may need to go fishing with someone who is not a formal guide.
