Uncover Hidden Dream Meanings

Catching fish is a great achievement in waking life and in the dream world.

It can be associated with your own pride and also embarrassment if the fish were small. Catching fish is covalently associated with love and passion you hold in waking life, as well as moving towards goals. For as long as I can remember I’ve been dreaming of fishing.

If you dreamt of seizing the opportunity of fishing on a boat then this can suggest that you’re going to tackle some life-changing events in future.

Therefore, if you discovered a fishing TV programme recently or was watching someone catching a fish while walking the dog - it is not uncommon to have a dream of fish. This dream included the “catching fish” symbolism of trying to gain a goal. Just like the fish at the end of the hook you may catch something in the future. This dream can also indicate that you are surrounded by support in future. The buckets of bait in your dream can illustrate wealth and prosperity. To fish in a lake or pond illustrates your own emotions and you are trying to take on something or seeking answers.

Very much like the fact you are tugging on the end of a fishing line. To dream of pin hooks or plastic rods can illustrate you are trying to catch something in life. Such as a obstacle or a challenge. If you encounter the excitement of the fish which is tugging on the end of your line it can illustrate that you might be at the end of an “era” in life. if you actually fish in real life as a beginner or alternatively an old-timer then this dream could just be a reflection of your overarching passion for fishing as a pastime. Fishing is often undertaken when we are trying to escape the chaos and mayhem of modern life, it is no exception in the dream state.
