"EDDYVILLE – The old adage says: give a man a fish and feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime. Turns out that’s not entirely accurate. A study by the National Park Service (NPS) shows that there is a much stronger correlation between teaching a man to fish and that man drinking beer outdoors for a lifetime. While the success rate in actually catching and keeping a fish depends on where he drops his line, the average recreational fisherman typically goes home empty-handed yet full-bellied.

The National Park Service (NPS) study followed 50 fishermen over 20 years and found that when a man acquires the insight and knowledge about how to fish, his monthly beer expenditure goes up 300% on average. This increase corresponds with a 25% increase in waist size. The study is summarized by stating that teaching a man to fish results in him learning to drink like a fish."
