Fishing (angling) Dream Meaning and Interpretations


Fishing (angling) Dream Symbol – Fishing is a symbol of work whose success is determined largely by luck. If you dream that you are out fishing, then the success of your current endeavors is indicated by the outcome of your fishing trip. If you dream that you catch many fish, then luck is on your side and your endeavor will be successful.

If you dream that you do not catch any fish, then you are unlikely to see success, regardless of how much effort you put into this venture. Alternatively, fishing can represent the journey into your subconscious. If this is the case, pay attention to the things that emerge – they may be strange or surprising.

Fishing DreamsTo dream of angling  could mean that you are waiting for something to happen. Part of angling requires a lot of patience and sacrifice in order to achieve your desired outcome.

The same is true for any goals that you have in life. You have to set goals and take the specific steps to fulfill those goals. You should take care to ensure that you have enough patience to fulfill the goals that you set out to achieve in your waking life.

Dreaming of fishing is a sign you are facing emotions that have been repressed for a long time. Or, you may be looking for attention. It can also indicate that your everyday needs will be well provided for as you have the ability to obtain enough resources. This dream can also be a reflection of the old saying “fishing for compliments”. Failing to catch a fish can mean your work to earn a living or a promotion may fail. It is a sign you may have to work harder.

Ice fishing can mean breaking through some tough emotions to get to the other side. These may have been with you since childhood and continued to stunt your growth. It can also mean you need to take time out to rejuvenate. Living life is not all about work. You need to balance it with pleasurable times.

    I dreamt that I was catching lobsters in the bottom of my pool and I caught alot. I didn’t get a chance to eat any of them yet. Last thing I remember was I was asking for a pot to start boiling them. I continue fishing but left some down the 6ft end. I’ve been going through a lot of relationship stress since I was able to date. Recently I had a bad relationship end horrible, the person turned out to be not as nice as I thought they were and I feel like everything is crashing down on me at one time. All my mistakes and the guilt of letting these people disrespect and use me. So hope that this bring me good foutune.

    I dreamed i was fishing in the presence of a mentor. The fishing line was in pairs, like antenna wires on old tv sets.
    I felt the tug of a fish strike but simply observed. Suddenly the fish started to run. I felt nearly pulled off my feet. Alithough I moved as to reel in the line and had all the physical sensations of doing so, the was no rod or reel. I found myself saying, “I will never catch this one any way, it is huge.” I replied, “Perhaps, but this is really fun and worthwhile all by itself.”

  3. Dreamt of catching fish in the pond where i catched two fish and gave it to a tiger, thinking that if i would not give those fish to the tiger then he may eat me. And while fishing i put blueberry as bait and caught two fishes with single bait.
