Fish need angler help

Dear Sir:

I would like to congratulate The Terrace Standard for printing Jim Benson’s well-thought-out angling feature, “All about the fish” in the Jan. 29, 2014 edition.

It is a refreshing change from the elitist, sarcastic point of view often presented by your regular angling columnist, who in the last months has made great efforts to deliberately vilify hunters, forestry workers, PNG employees, guide outfitters, fisheries biologists, and most fishermen.

I fully support Mr. Benson’s point of view that sport fisherman need to band together to maintain our great fishing heritage and protect fish stocks.

The enemy is not, as Rob Brown seems to think, average people who work in our area and eat the fish they catch.

Your average angler is concerned about conservation can contribute, if they can be engaged. Maybe it just takes an outside perspective to figure out how.

Tim Moser, Terrace, B.C.
