All the romance of trout fishing exists in the mind of the angler and is in no way shared by the fish.  ~Harold F. Blaisdell, The Philosophical Fisherman, 1969

Bringing Awareness

It doesn't matter if it's a little pond, a large lake, a river or a reservoir,
wherever there's water, fishermen will show up almost every day
if the water isn't frozen over.

And some – maybe not all, but certainly some – will leave something behind.

Sometimes it's just a flimsy plastic container that held worms or some other bait,.cigarette butts, beer cans and other unnecessary trash. And quite often what remains in the dirt or among the rocks on the shore is a pile of tangled fishing line, sometimes with hooks included.

If you've ever fished you know that mono filament line can get hopelessly tangled in a variety of ways, and there's not a lot you can do other than cut the line, set aside the mess and attach a new hook or lure.

Mono filament fishing line, lures, hooks, metal leaders and weights (sinkers) present huge dangers to birds and wildlife when not  disposed of. Mono filament line is amazingly strong and can tangle around the bills, feet, wings and legs of birds – often resulting in death or amputations of feet, legs and wings. When line gets wrapped around a bird’s neck, it can be the beginning of a slow, painful strangulation.

Little thought is given by fishermen when they snap off a tangled line, other than “Dang, that was my favorite lure.”

Mono filament line along with other unnecessary trash left behind is not biodegradable and kills indiscriminately.

So we ask that you leave the area cleaner than when you arrived. Clean up and dispose of any fishing line or unnecessary trash you may find. 

Do your part – knowing that your efforts are appreciated – especially by the, innocent wildlife that live among  your favorite fishing areas.
