Don't be so sure that the ranks of fishermen are increasing. I think that license sales are down in many states including Maine and California.
I like the idea of taking kids fishing.
Befor people start going off on PETA, think about the disrespect and cruelty we see towards animals. It exists.
PETA is a wacky group of extriemists(if you think that "only in the U.S." you are wrong). They will implode as they get further and further out there.
Next time you see someone kicking a fish back into the surf, thank him for PETA.
One cast can change your day...maybe your life.
