I'm not against fishing entirely... we need it to control populations on certain species... in the summer, I go fishing too. I enjoy feeding the worms to the fish, quite often I can get them all to come up and eat from my hand...
hhhmmm... I guess that doesn't quite qualify me, huh?
Last summer my husband and daughter went fishing with me at our local quarry. They caught the small panfish while I fed the fish to a blue heron that spent about 2 hrs with us near the shore. By the time some people came along and scared the bird away, I had him coming about 2 ft from me and taking the fish from my hand. I can't ignore fish as a food source, but this thread was a little beyond that... left my stomach feeling unsettled.
I can't help myself... I just love the fish.
