It’s summer, which means it’s time to ignore the lawn mower, grab the ol’ fishing pole and sneak off to wet a line.
If you’re a fisherman or woman, the only thing that beats fishing is – well, if you’re a diehard angler, nothing beats fishing. The only thing that could possibly make it better is when the fishing is really, really convenient. And what would be more convenient than having a trout stream running right past your property? Or a stocked pond on your land? Or a house sitting on the hem of a bass-filled lake?
“Buying a home that is near a river, creek or stream is a major plus,” said Alison Schwartz of Move Inc., which runs the real-estate website Realtor.com. “And, of course, if you’re looking for a quiet place to kick back to swim, fish or boat with the family, there’s no better place than your own backyard.”
