    Cricky Mate,

    Could'nt put it better myself.

    The "anti's"of all descriptions are all about stopping folk enjoying their lawful hobbies.I know from experience(though not through Angling)that they are a vicious self serving mob who will stop at nothing,including underhand tricks)to further their misguided ideas.Even sader is the fact that they are mostly funded by a few rich misguided b****ds.there is also the fact from what I have read,that they only attack the weak and those less able to defend themselves.

    Leftie, tree hugging tossers. And that's being polite.

    Nothing wrong with being a lefty, protecting trees, or the odd toss, but leave fishing alone why don't ya!

    Nice writing Jeff!one thing that I don't agree with all this is the killing side.Either fish or a deer etc should not be killed and the true is if not the humans there will be much more wild life around us then it is now.We done it (killing)and still do by our way of live.Occupying most of the animal habitats driving cars and chopping trees .The list is endless.I still love fishing and carrying for all animals including humans but again don't agree with killing either of them at sea, fresh water or in the forest etc.But thats only me.


    I`m left wing,and won`t allow anybody to cut them off, and yes I did hug some trees before [img]/forum/smilies/wink_smiley.gif[/img]

    Just one point, Jeff. I would very much like to see the closed season return across the board but not as some peace offering to PETA; because I think it's good for the environment and, as I've said very many times, a closed season is observed by all field sports.

    But in every other respect I agree completely. We have a nation of people who think that everyone else's entertainment is wrong. I've done a bit of off-roading. Less than 2% of all byway is legally accessible to vehicles, and the ramblers even want that stopped. And because off-roaders are outnumbered 10/1 by walkers, they'll succeed; nobody cares whether they have a good reason, might is right.

    And that's where angling will slip up in this increasingly urbanised world, in which so very few people have any connection whatever with the countryside.

    Wictor , It's a fish of course. This is a fishing website after all.
    Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split, as a general thing.

    Nice piece Jeff,

    . . . but the cynic inside of me tells me that in time to come you will use this article as a 'hook' upon which to hang your closed season arguments upon.

    Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers.

    Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. ~

    Just read the article again Jeff,

    It is not often that I agree with every point made in an article, but I do in this one. Very well written and puts over some very relevant points.
