The other day I was driving down a major boulevard in Sacramento and I got behind a black SUV sporting a yellow and blue bumper sticker that read “Fishing Hurts.”
As I followed the lady for a few blocks, I started thinking about how scary the anti-fishing and hunting movements are becoming. It starts with a bumper sticker here and then the next thing you know, there’s a protest down at the local boat ramp. The next time you show up, there’s a no fishing regulation in place at your favorite lake.
My apprehension turned to rage when the anti-angler turned into the parking lot of a trendy sushi joint. I guess fishing for fun is a reprehensible act but fishing to supply restaurants with hamachi, maguro and unagi is perfectly acceptable!
