GETZVILLE, N.Y. (WKBW) — This can be a pretty stressful time as we're all cooped up at home, trying to stay safe.

That's why a couple of Western New Yorkers found a unique way to relieve that stress, and combat cabin fever.

Jeff Vetter of Getzville and Alex Hepworth of Williamsville decided to fish as a way to spend time in mother nature and to de-stress.

"It's not always important to have your electronic device in your hand," Vetter said.

"Being out in mother nature is always a positive thing," Hepworth said. "It's good to get away from everything else by just going out and fishing."
