Meaning of Fishing / Fisherman Dreams | Dream Interpretation
Dream interpretations were found from 1 different sources.
If you were fishing in your dream, you may be looking for insight into a particular problem in waking life. The dream may also suggest that deep emotions are being brought to the surface. Consider what you were fishing for in your dream; was it compliments, attention or the truth in a difficult or ’fishy’ situation? Did you catch your dream fish in your dream? If you did, it may indicate that you will find that an answer to a long-standing question suddenly pops into your mind. Alternatively, if your catch gasped for breath as it flapped around on the ground, do you feel like a fish out of water in waking life? If it wriggled frantically, could your dream have been drawing your attention to a ’slippery fish’ or elusive person in your real life? If the fish was cold to the touch, could this perhaps refer to someone in your life who is emotionally cold, perhaps even you?
On the other hand, dreams about fishing—particularly ones in which a freshwater fisherman or angler appears—could simply indicate the need for rest and relaxation.
If a fisherman does appear in your dream or you are the fisherman, pay attention to the actions that are performed, as they will help you interpret the dream. Often a fisherman will represent a person, such as a provider, or a concept, such as bravery. This latter is especially the case if he is a deep-sea fisherman. A fishing line refers to a length or measure of spiritual inquiry, a fishing rod signifies a life aspect that can assist you in your spiritual search and a fishing trip symbolizes a desire to gain further information regarding a particular issue. Consider also if you are trying to catch something like a job or a partner in waking life.
If you visit a fish market in your dreams, try to recall the species of fish, the amount you bought and their condition, as a fish market may refer to your own personal spiritual belief system. Finally, because of its Christian association, a fisherman may suggest a priest or someone with priest-like qualities in your dreams.
