With all the panic since the election and the run on ammo, guns, and other assorted items that the administration is set on banning to protect ourselves from ourselves..... I just realized what the next ban threat is going to be! Tactical / Assault fishing equipment
Folks I'm talking treble hooks, fish finders, trot lines, high powered bass boats! There gonna try and take it all away from us. Their goal is to beat us back down to the cane pole and bucket o' worms era. Laugh if you want, but I seem to remember just recently about PETA wanting a memorial sign placed in honor of dead fish. So rise up ye fellow anglers, dig out those Ronco pocket fishermen sets that you secretly buried from prying eyes, and restock that bug-out bag with Mepp's spinners and stink bait
Don't let the UN take our poles!
Hey I got a muzzle loader too. Just had a thought, put the ramrod partially into the barrel, tie a line and bait to the far end of the ramrod.... instant fishing pole in disguise! Now if they make it illegal to fish, just say your hunting... and visa-versa.
With the krap coming out of wacky land now days, I wouldn't put it past them.
"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, 1785
