Go Fishing

They call it angling because you have to fool a fish into eating a lure you’ve offered rather than bugs and other such things normally on their menu. To trick a fish, you have to think like a fish. You have to wonder about where they swim, what they eat, and all sorts of other seemingly trivial details. And if you think like a fish, you can’t imagine spoiling their environment or living in a way that’s not considerate of them. That important lesson in conservation, and millions of other smaller lessons just like it lie on the other side of a simple fishing trip. The bonus is, that it’s just plain fun. A simple and pure way for people to rediscover their place in nature.
