I just happened to think, I haven't seen too much discussion here about TRASH. I know most of the dedicated fishermen that come to this site have enough respect for the water and the land around it not to trash it up. However, every time I go to the river, ( or Lake), I see trash that some fisherman, no SLOB, left behind. My canoeing/ kyaking friends started something about 15 years ago that really helps. Every time we go on the water, wether it's fishing or just floating, we take a garbage bag along. (One per boat.) Usually there are several of us running the river or fishing together. Whoever collects the LEAST amount of trash that day, has to haul ALL of it home to dispose of it properly. Our local canoe club even had a TRASH DERBY where prizes were awarded for the most trash brought back to the take out. We figure if enough of us haul out our trash PLUS someone elses, things will be a lot cleaner and prettier where we fish. Now if all of the people that come to this site do it.....just think what a difference we'll make!
