London: Hollywood actor Liam Neeson has revealed one of his favourite hobbies is fly fishing.

The actor who has two sons with his late wife Natasha Richardson has left his partying days in Hollywood behind him and now prefers to spend his spare time on the water, but admits he hasn`t had many opportunities to indulge in his hobby lately, reports contactmusic.com.

"There`s a lot of nonsense in Hollywood. I`ve been a part of that years ago and gotten the T-shirt. I was even president of the club at one stage. I love doing the work but then when I`m not working I love my other life which is being with my kids and fly fishing as much as I can," he said.

"I haven`t been out since the end of August when I took my kids to Wyoming and we caught a few trout," he added.

Liam is such a fan of fly fishing that he has even taken part in a programme about his hobby.

"In America there`s a programme called `Fly Fishing the World` and I`ve done about five of them. The last one I did was in New Zealand for about ten days and I brought my best friend. We had two cameras up our noses the entire time but they`re great fun," he said.
