Some Very Different Outdoor Hobbies You Can Try

Aug 3, 2008
Hobbies are favorite pastimes that one likes to indulge in and gives a great sense of satisfaction. These hobbies are played for fun and relaxation and sometimes they are taken up seriously. You can be involved either in indoor hobbies or outdoor hobbies. Some outdoor hobbies are trekking, river rafting and bungee jumping. Here we bring you some unique and pulse ticking outdoor hobbies that will set your adrenaline rushing.

Remote Control Helicopter Flying

This term does not mean that you have to maneuver the real life size helicopters but replicas of helicopters which are remote controlled. If you love anything technical gizmos that are fast paced and dare to throw a challenge at you then Remote Control Helicopter flying is the right outdoor hobby for you. This sport is quite challenging and you need some support before you can try it on your own. There are lots of online sites that provide you with necessary support.

Airsoft and Paintball

This is one of the favorite outdoor hobbies for those who love playing war games. Both these games are based on war and have replicas of firearms. Both airsoft and paintball can give you a high if you are someone who revels in armory and weapons. However these could be fatal also if someone with deadly intentions of harming people take to this sport. In Paintball you need to be more nimble and skillful which requires a lot of physical training. The weapons used are functional but not very attractive in appearance.

The guns used in Airsoft are also functional and you can use them for practicing in your backyard as well. The Airsoft pistols and rifles have been made in such a way that they can fire the small plastic shots as well as the paint filled ones. The paintball guns use high powered gas cylinders to make them work while in Airsoft you can fire with the help of compressed gas or springs or even electronic firing. The Airsoft guns were not made for long range firing. So they do not have the accuracy and range that Paintball guns have.

Many people possess Airsoft guns as showpieces in their house rather than use them for indulging in any sport. However you need to take special care in protecting your eyes by wearing the safety goggles and protective clothing for your neck and upper torso.

Fly Fishing

You must be wondering "now what the heck is Fly Fishing and how is it an outdoor hobby?" Fly Fishing is a special type of fishing and different from your traditional fishing technique such as bait casting. Fly fishing has its own equipment, gears and technology as the nearly weightless bait is carried forward by the weighted line for casting unlike the traditional method that is used. In the traditional fishing method you cast your bait and wait for the fish to bite it. In fly fishing you need to repeatedly cast your bait at intervals to let the fly to float The Fly Fishing rods are longer than the usual ones as they are used for steelhead or salmon fishing.
