That's funny - I thought PETA was trying to ban people.

Now wait a minute, don't be so hasty. Impaling PETA freaks on meat hooks is of questionable moral standing. AAAAAHHHHHH!!!!!! Just kidding. Go ahead and impale away. [}:D]

We should ban PETA and other idiots like them.

Those fucking idiots, don't they know it's OK to eat fish because they don't have any feelings?
Link Posted: 8/16/2002 7:11:12 AM EDT
Fishing with hooks is barbaric! Talk about lying in wait. They ought to make fishermen swim underwater and hunt fishes with spearguns to make it sporting. And, they have to wear blaze orange wetsuits for safety reasons.

I'm glad I spent 400 bucks for a life membership to B.A.S.S. As for peta, The organization took a shot at fishing came by erecteing billboards in Spanish Fork, Utah and Bossier City, Louisiana – areas that recently hosted fishing tournaments. The boards depict a dog with a fishhook imbedded in its lip. The billboard reads, “If you wouldn’t do it to a dog, why do it to a fish?” That's it. I'm going fishing in Catskill Creek again. Then I will be fishing for snappers, flounder and blue-claw crabs in Bay Park. Look at this article: New Orleans - PETA's newest ad, featuring "good ol' boy" and reformed fisher Jay Kelly, from Montgomery, Ala., is flooding the airwaves with PETA's plea to anglers to "lay down your rod and reel and take a hike!" The commercial, which will run on a variety of stations throughout the city beginning tomorrow, to coincide with the BASS Masters Classic, encourages people to visit PETA's fish-friendly Web site, www.NoFishing.net, which expands on PETA's point that fish feel pain when impaled on a hook and begin to die slowly when ripped from the water. As a child, Kelly fished with his family. He now realizes that fish have feelings, too. "Fishing is just as cruel as beating a puppy," says Kelly. "When those fish on your hook move their lips, they aren't whistling Dixie, they're trying desperately to keep on breathing. They know they are suffocating to death." Kelly hopes that fishers will toss their tackle, pitch their poles for good, and take up harmless outdoor activities like hiking, badminton, and lawn-bowling. In 1999, Linda McCartney starred in PETA's first nationwide anti-fishing television commercial, declaring September 25 "National Fish Amnesty Day." [b] Boycott PETA. Go fishing on September 25th.[/b]

I can't wait for some liberal PETA weenie to come on my land and [try to] tell me that I have to stop fishing. I catch and release all the largemouth, crappie, bluegill, cats, etc. in my pond and I aim to keep fishing and releasing just as long as I am able. Mess with me and I'll feed 'em to the two large and ill-tempered snapping turtles that live there too. MORONS...

I must have a touch of dyslexia because I thought your subject line said, "PETA trying to ban [b][i]fisting[/i][/b]".

I for one never got the concept of catch and release.I'm not against fishing though.

Finance the pro gun lobby by purchasing a special PETA members stamp so you can hunt and shoot them!(No daily bag limits though!)[:D]

"Catch and release?" Is that anything like the "fillet and release" program implemented by anglers in areas with a particularly strong Fish and Game Warden presence? [0:)] -Nick Viejo.

Example of people not able to keep things in the proper prospective. I'm a science teacher but these people just chap my ass. Reminds me of a camping trip in one of the state parks where the camp ranger informed us that we couldn't use our bug zapper to zap flying insects because it was too cruel to there systems. Just how cruel would if be when they got eaten by a bird?

That reminds me, I haven't made it to the lake this summer at all. Gonna go respool the line, audit the tackle box, hitch up the boat, and do some fishing. May wait till tomorrow, so I can spend some time sharpening hooks today.
