Fishing Legislation

Tennessee Constitutional Amendment
I am happy to say that the Right to Hunt and Fish Amendment was passed by an approximate 80% to 20% vote. I wonder who would vote no? I’d like to talk to them to learn there reasons. But it is likely that they did not vote “no’, they just did not vote, and that counted as a “no” vote.

Petition to Ban the Use of Lead in All Fishing Tackle
l received a nice letter from Keep America Fishing on this:

KAF_email_header_NEW_2Thanks to your help, on Thursday, November 4, 2010, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rejected the petition to ban lead in all fishing tackle.

The EPA and Members of Congress received more than 43,000 messages from anglers just like you opposing a federal ban on lead in fishing tackle. Your voice was heard and had a direct impact on the EPA’s decision.  …

The above is good news for anglers.

not getting what you want."

Joke of the Day

Husband and wife were in the midst of a violent quarrel, and hubby was losing his temper.

"Be careful," he said to his wife. "You will bring out the animal in me."

"So what?" his wife shot back. "Who is afraid of a mouse?"
