    Ok that makes sense. Fishing is one of those hobbies like golf I think, people can become sort of addicted to it; my late dad was a huge golfer, every weekend that's pretty much all he did after he retired, traveled playing in tournaments throughout the country.

    Fortunately my step mom shared his passion and they golfed together, but fishing is more a lone sport so if that's what he's into, may as well get used to him being gone a lot.

    What kind of fish does he catch, does he keep, clean and eat, or toss them back?

    i can totally see why you might think that. but we're talking FISHING.
    Fishing is often about just being alone, quiet time, relaxing. Since you are already doing a few days together immeidately beforehand - i don't see anything wrong with this.

    Having "me time" and personal pursuits away from each other is a healthy thing.

    I find it strange that anyone would ask this. It's alone time. Some people crave it, and that's not a reflection on their partner.

    I'm sure if he was thinking of cheating while out camping. He would have never ever told you the story of his cheating brother!

    I do think he just wants some alone time. You have to love a bit of "me" time. For me it's a pamper day. For him it's a bit of fishing.

    You guys are spending time together before. So I genuinely do not think anything untoward is happening.

    Enjoy you time with him before the fishing trip. Then let him go off and enjoy his "me" time.

    I am a big believer in "me" time in a relationship :)

    Yup. Overthinking. Big time. Don't give the guy hassle about it.
