When we are at the lake, Tom always tells me to dream of the big bass hitting my lure. I will tell you I have hard set a lot of fish in my sleep over the last decade. Some of them meant an elbow into his side.
Let's see what we can find out about fishing/catching, shall we?
To see a fisherman in your dream, suggests that you are trying to catch something in your waking life.
To see fishhooks in your dream, refers to an idea or concept that you need to grasp. The dream may also indicate that you are getting hooked on something or being hooked in. You may be deceived into doing or believing something.
To dream that you are fishing, indicates that you are confronting and bringing your repressed emotions to the surface. In particular, to dream that you are ice fishing, suggests that you are breaking through a hardened emotional barrier and confronting difficult feelings from your unconscious. Alternatively, it represents your need for leisure and relaxation.
Consider the common phrase "fishing for compliments". Perhaps you are looking for attention.
To see a fishing rod in your dream, represents your quest and exploration of your unconscious mind. You are ready to confront issues and emotions which you have suppressed.
To see a fishnet in your dream, indicates a fear of being found out or caught in the act.
Well, I like the hook set best and think the rest is who-e!
