Warming worth more than a thought
A very happy Christmas to all the readers of this column and I hope that your fishing in 2008 will produce some nice meals in the new year. But as you sit down to a good feed of fish give a thought to the environment.
There is something happening to our environment and Im certain that global warming has something to do with it. Not only is it affecting fishing but it is a major stumbling block to world peace. Many of those who will be affected by the warming of the globe are from poorer nations and they may well want safe haven sooner than we think. Im not offering answers but I do think we need to take note of what is happening. Many of us have grandchildren and there is a very real sense that they will never know the world environment we have. It is worth a thought and its worth making some changes to how we live and how we fish. So get a license and stay within bag limits this Christmas.
