FISH­ING BY THE RULES

Marlin - - FEEDBACK -

Thanks a ton for the ed­i­to­rial comment on why fish­ing by the rules is im­por­tant. I en­counter scores of an­glers show­ing pho­tos and boast­ing of their ter­rific fly­fish­ing ac­com­plish­ments. When I ask about what tip­pet they were us­ing, too of­ten the re­sponse is, “None. We were not fish­ing for records.” Well, they were not re­ally fly fish­ing at all, just us­ing the equip­ment. They might as well put out a live bait on the fly line. If gath­er­ing biomass is your game, that’s fine, just own up to it. Even I could shoot par golf if I did not com­ply with PGA rules.
